Description

The IKEA KURA bed tent converts the top half of a bunk into a cosy hideaway. Having played with a few 1 metre lengths of WS2812 LED strips in silicone sleeves, I thought it would be good to add one to the top of the canopy.

The bed tent has a long pole running along the inside top. This is ideal to use with some simple clips which print in minutes in fast mode.

Just clip the rectangular end around the LED light strip and the other end around the pole. Add your power and off you go.

I used a remote controller for the light strip available cheaply in a variety of online stores. Great for kids to have a light chaser or different lighting effects, or set it to white to read by.

Materials and methods

I printed these quickly in PLA. You'll need about 12, spaced at regular intervals along the strip.
