Blinded By The Light! Micro LEDs String Lights – Review


Hi folks, simply unbelievable light is emitted by these teeny tiny Micro LEDs String Lights!  Take a look at these fantastically bright little lights that I received for this review. The 20 LEDs String lights are on a small plastic coated wire that is 7 foot long and spaced 4 inches apart. The color of my lights are green and it takes 3 AA batteries.

There is not much that I can say about these lights other then WOW! I see that these light would be perfect for crafting, the Micro LEDs String Lights are so tiny and thin that they are easily manipulated to a design you want.

Step One was making the pocket and attaching in nearby the project (in this case my screen door)

For the crafting idea I had for these lights, since the lights are green, I decided to tape it up with simple scotch tape in the shape of a shamrock on my back door window. I first took an old CD/DVD envelope (in this case plastic) and folded it over loosely around the battery pack and then used Packing Tape to Attach it to the Screen Door Frame. The battery pack is light enough that those paper like CD/DVD Envelopes should work too. I then just strung up the lights in a Shamrock like shape taping it up here and there with clear scotch tape. When I do this for St. Pat’s Day I will use some Poster Paint and paint the shamrock green and tape the lights up around it, so that the design is more obvious (poster paint washes off from windows/glass easily).

Sorry blurry, for nights now we’ve had thunderstorms so finally tonight I stood in the garage to get this night shot of the shamrock.

 

I am very impressed with these little lights and I am sure I will come up with more design ideas for them as time goes on.

This is an uncommonly short and sweet review, as these lights would outshine my words in every way! I never could imagine that a battery operated LED Light could be so very bright and last for over 48 hours on the batteries! Impressive aren’t they? 🙂

Inspiration Day for me…

I keep finding these wonderful money saving, crafty bloggers. Today, I said to heck with it and, I started following the inspirational blogs that I keep stumbling upon.

Todays, additions are from: http://sewing.craftgossip.com where I’ve just kept clicking through their lists of crafting posts and when I found one that looked like it suited my taste I “followed” them. So far I am on page 12… lol I am not sure I can take much more inspiration without acting upon it, so I may quit looking at there list and get to work here. 🙂

I promise myself just 1 more page again as I get back to following some blogs. 🙂

Side Note: Doesn’t it always seem, like a crafter is always saying one more time, one more row with knitting or crocheting etc, and before you know it 2 more hours have gone by?
