Thought I would share my idea on how I am going to put led strip lights
around the belly band to create Party Scamp!!
I estimate it will cost $60 or $70.
Initially, I just purchased some led strip lights
with adhesive backing that I was going to simply stick to the underside. But they didn't bend enough around the curves, so it was back to the drawing board. Besides, I don't think they would have lasted a year before falling off.
I also could have done rope lights
, but that would be too easy!
So, on some random forum, someone suggest Pex tubing (for plumbing). It's about $30 for 50 feet. Well I just happen to have some left over from a project, so let the fun begin!
I drilled holes on the underside of the 1/2" Pex big enough to fit a screwhead thru, then drilled pilot holes in band, and then installed the screws. I used clamps and moved them as needed. I believe it will be fairly weather proof, until the Pex fades at least.
I'll post more as the project continues.
