Description


This little makey can be a very simple decoration for your house and you can do it yourself in a few steps. In the makey is a LED that is powered by a wireless apple watch charger. I had the idea of powering something wirelessly by the apple watch charger, so I made it come to life in this makey. A wire is made into a coil and connected to an LED. It is printed in pieces and stuck together. I did this Project for the Make Magazine Holiday Ornament Challenge and it's just the thing to complete a Maker's space!

There shouldn't be a problem but the circuit might harm your charger so try it at your own risk. I didn't have an issue with it anyways.
