EL Wire Holiday Tree + LED Dog Collar


I used 40+ feet of Electroluminescent Wire leftover from halloween to create a glowing tree for some holiday ambience. Since EL Wire does not hold its shape very well I first made a skeleton of two inter-twined coils of multipurpose bendable wire supported by a central trunk. I was then able to attach the EL Wire and make a somewhat tree-like sculpture.


I also made a festive collar for my girlfriend’s dog using red LEDs. This serves the dual purpose of letting her join the holiday party in style and ensure she is visible if she wanders on the street at night.


She doesn’t seem to even notice it even with the hefty 9V battery taped in place. el_led2
