Candle Flicker LED Hair Bow video & tutorial #WearableWednesday

Make a twinkling accent for your updo! This tutorial will teach you to make a ribbon bow and simple LED circuit. One Adafruit LED Sewing Kit has enough supplies for two bows, so make this project with a friend! The included LEDs contain a tiny chip that flickers the LEDs to simulate a candle’s glow, so all we have to do is power them up! Check out the complete candle flicker LED hair bow tutorial at the Adafruit Learning System and watch the video on YouTube (please subscribe!) and Vimeo.
