LED PomPom Headbands
Design and build time for each project: 30 minutes — 1 hour
In this project, we’ll create two versions of a wearable headband - one for beginners and one for more advanced makers. In the beginner project, we will make a simple circuit made of 8x - 10x Super Bright White LEDs wired in parallel and powered by a single rechargeable LiPo Battery.
In the more advanced project, we will make a more complicated programmable circuit using addressable LEDs, Arduino Pro Mini 5V/16MHz, and two LiPo batteries wired in parallel.
Before you get started with the beginner’s version, take some time to familiarize yourself with the following:
How to Solder: Through-Hole Soldering
What is a Circuit?
How to Power a Project
Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs)
In order to follow along with the more advanced version, ensure that you are familiar with the following as well:
