Connect the Pixels:Connect the Arduino to the pixel strip as shown: Plug one end of the jumper into the Arduino header and the other end into the female connector on the input end of the strip. Tape or rubber-band the connector to the board so the wires don't pull out.
+5v - Red wire
GND - Blue (black) wire
Pin 2 (Data) - Yellow wire
Pin 3 (Clock) - Green Wire
Load and Test:At this point, you should load the code (see the next page) and test to make sure everything is connected properly. If all is well, you should see random pairs of leds 'blinking'.
Attach the Battery Pack:Place the Arduino on top of the battery pack and tape or rubber-band in place.
Bag it:For outside use, wrap the whole assembly in a plastic bag and secure with rubber bands. Suspend the assembly with the open end of the bag facing down so the bag does not fill with water if it rains.
Start counting pairs from the input end of the strand. Since there are 25 pixels per strand, you will have one odd pixel left over at the end. Just tuck that one back behind some leaves.
