This is my entry for the 2016 Make magazine Christmas ornament contest.
During Halloween I decide to decorate our pumpkin a little differently this year. Using an Arduino and a bunch of RGB LEDs I turned in into a beacon welcoming the trick-or-treaters. After the pumpkin passed on, I decided that this ornament needed a more permanent 3d printed skeleton, and needed some new Christmas themed light patterns. The result is the flashy Christmas ornament that you see here.
