This jack-o-lantern pumpkin design has creepy glowing eyes that light up with the flick of a switch thanks to the addition of LEDs! You can get the pattern which includes detailed step by step instructions for completing the pumpkins electronic circuit with conductive thread. There is a circuit diagram, and if you are not familiar with electronics, carefully follow each step to ensure your components are the right way around and linked correctly.
A list of the electronic components required is included with the pumpkin pattern, or you can buy the jack-o-lantern kit with all the electronic bits you need - you just add fabric and a sewing needle! The kit includes conductive thread so you don't need a hot soldering iron or any prior electronics experience.
With a little switch to turn him on and off to conserve battery power, this project is perfect for Halloween and can be used as a unique night light for a childs room, or great decoration for the spooky season.
