You should now have 5 or 6 jumper wire ends inside your pumpkin, 2 from the button and 3-4 from your pixels.
Prep your breadboard by creating a ground rail and a power rail (a rail is a place where all the same kind of wires hook together).
Review the circuit diagram. This illustration is meant for referencing wired connections. The style of LEDs, length of wire, position, and size of components do not match the actual project.
- The +5v on the LEDs connects to the power rail on the breadboard.
- The GND on the LEDs connects to the ground rail on the breadboard.
- The Data In on the LEDs connects to pin 6 on the Feather Board.
- If using 4-pin LEDs, such as the WS2801 from Adafruit, the Clock In on the LEDs connects to pin 5 on the Feather Board.
- One side of the button connects to the ground rail on the breadboard.
- The other side of the button (diagonal leg) connects to pin 11 on the Feather Board.
- The Lithium-Ion battery plugs into the JST socket on the Feather Board
