DIY LED Necklace by Diana Eng

Here is a super cute DIY necklace by Diana Eng. It is just one of the projects form her book, Fashion Geek: Clothes Accessories Tech. You can download the PDF directions to this project here or visit Etsy for step-by-step instructions.




Just a quick note: It is very possible to use insulated wire instead of thread in this project. The thread is good for sewing up the ribbon, but its exposed to the elements, touching the body, and has extra resistance you may not want.

To use a wire here, use a very tiny 24 - 26 gauge insulated stranded wire, zig zag sew it to the ribbon, and then solder it to the battery pack as directed.
