Using electroluminescent wire, a.k.a. EL wire, is a fun and easy way to incorporate battery powered lighting in your craft projects. If you’ve been meaning to try this material out but have been intimidated to work with electronics, Meg Allan Cole shows you just how simple it can be in the HGTV Handmade video below.

Make some light up signage to get in the spirit of Valentines Day, or create something totally unique as a gift for that special someone who lights up your life! You can find all the parts you need in the Maker Shed.
