It's never a bad time to make a NeoPixel project, but the holiday season certainly does lend itself to creating large-scale, blinky, colorful displays. In this project, we're taking the classic Christmas tree shape, cutting it out of wood and mounting some NeoPixels in the tree to create a festive yuletide light display.
The whole thing is controlled by a Circuit Playground Bluefruit board, which sits proudly on top of the tree in a 3D printed star with all ten of its NeoPixels shining brightly and swirling along with the additional pixels on the tree.
Other Supplies and Tools
Don't feel confined by these supplies though for the tree body and NeoPixel mounting options. You could use fabric, cardboard, foam, etc. to create your own tree shape.
