DIY - Portable China Ball hacks? using LED pocket lights

Recommended Posts

With the influx of small portable LED lights I was wondering if anyone had any hacks using them with paper lanterns? 

Im not that fussed on long running time, looking for a wireless setup thats easy to carry and play around with.

I'd probably look at getting some LED strip and just coil it around a bit of tube, or something. You can get stuff on eBay that has reasonable colour quality and then you end up with something really inexpensive.

Connect 'em up to battery, I guess. I have some dimmers that handle it quite well but that's an optional extra.

I like his attitude. I'd recommend that video.
