Brought the Antarctica Scene Indoors
I brought the antarctica scene into the dining room today and started hooking up the lighting.
I used some LED icicle strands that added nice icy accents. The icicles come in strands of 10 and have a DC converter. I yanked the tiny LEDs out of the clear plastic icicles and pushed the LEDs up through tiny holes I made in the polystyrene. Then, I hotglued the icicles back onto the bulbs.
In the bottom of the polystyrene, I carved out grooves and shoved the extra wire lengths into the grooves. Then, I taped the bottom up. The only view that's not so great is the one from under the glass dining table. Oh well, I don't plan on getting down there all that much.
One pretty cool thing that I hadn't planned on is that I put three lights under the water. The lights glow from below.
