Quick LED Robot Ornament (video)

My colleagues over on CRAFT all have the work ethics and compulsive tendencies that of any crafter worth his/her stripes. When Rachel and Lish proposed an ornament swap this year, precariously close to Christmas, we all piled on. None of us can resist crafting on a deadline. I whipped up a whole bunch of these cardboard LED robot ornaments on Sunday morning. I used what I had at hand– some cardboard, spray paint, and a whole bunch of LEDs. Since I can’t resist the urge to document my crafts, enjoy this video and see the complete how-to on Make: Projects.

    Becky, thanks for this awesome idea… I just made one for my 3 year old who is sleeping and I know he’s going to love it.  I didn’t have a battery connector but I did have a Halloween bag that had blinking LEDs.  I just took that and re-purposed it for this project.
    Thanks again!
