Adafruit LED Strip Christmas Tree!!!

Community member MarkEMarkEMark from the Adafruit Forums shared an awesome LED Strip (LPD8806) project he did for his home Christmas Tree. Happy Holidays!

Hi all, I’ve decided to post ALL my code for my home made Christmas tree. It’s simply the LED Strip (LPD8806) wrapped around a metal cone frame.

You can change programs (various ones from the Ladyada examples, but also a number of my own – including the color phasing / interference posted on this forum yesterday, plus a great simplex noise based on happyinmotion’s forum topic).

You can also change ‘patterns’, i.e. the variations – usually color changes. This usually does different color combinations.

Here’s the Code!
