Introduction: Solar Powered Light-Up Terrarium

问:What do you get when you cross a nightlight with a scrapbook?

A:太阳能灯具玻璃玻璃!

I upcycled a broken set of solar-powered garden lights to create this mini terrarium scene. It depicts the cabin that my boyfriend and I rented last year and is a memento of our trip. The roof and trees are made from the pine cones that we picked up on that trip too! When night falls, the cabin lights up, the fireflies start flashing, and the fire flickers!

Where I got my supplies:

其他:

  • 松果(来自树林)
  • Cardboard
  • 干咖啡(污垢)
  • 花卉苔藓(填充底部)从美元商店。

第1步:收获电路板

当他们持续时,我的太阳能童话灯是可爱的 - 他们会在阳光下整天收费,然后在暗时照亮一两个小时。经过几年的外面,灯光生锈并停止工作,但太阳能电池板案仍然是圆形的。

我保留了小组和案例“以防万一”我想为另一个项目使用它 -and this is it!

The circuit board inside uses the solar cell to charge two rechargeable batteries and when the solar cell isn't receiving light (for example, when It gets dark) it switches to using the collected charge in the battery to power the fairy lights.

If you want to make a project like this but don't have my exact model, don't worry! This is a common circuit found in many solar-powered lights for the garden. They charge all day and light up at night - I've even seen similar lights at the dollar store, so look out for the opportunity to pick one up for cheap and see what's inside!

Step 2: Modify the Circuit

我刷出了一些部分,使其更适合我的项目:

  • I removed the circuit board from the case.
  • I replaced the solar panel with a round solar panel for aesthetics (it will hide behind the moon!)
  • 我用新的电池支架取代了电池夹,使其在玻璃土中更好
  • 我将6针连接器焊接到用于连接到旧童话灯上的正极和负线的电线。3电线转到电源,3往地进行,所以现在我有3个连接电路的连接。

Step 3: Making the Cabin

I used cardboard and木卡片to create the cabin, and colored the wood withFurniture Markersthat are typically used to cover scratches in wood furniture. Then, I used my X-Acto knife to scratch away at the wood to give it a weathered look. You can see this step in more detail in the video linked earlier in this tutorial. :)

第4步:别忘了衡量......

*** I had to be careful with my measurements to be sure I could get the cabin into the terrarium once it was built!

Step 5: Making a Roof

我将花瓣从松果上剪掉,用热胶水完全覆盖纸板屋顶。松树锥的内部看起来像一棵小树,所有花瓣都切断了,所以我把它们涂成绿色并使用它们!

第6步:制作微小的Adirondack椅子

I used双钉安装胶片两层木卡片之间使其双面,稍厚。我寻找生活大小的Adirondack椅子的灵感,并从木头上切出微小的形状。

Step 7: Keep It Simple

我不是切割单独的板,我用一块木材制成,座椅,用剪刀切割狭缝,看起来是用几件制成的。

第8步:做出一小块火

To make a tiny fire that looks like it's flickering, I used two fairly lights that were pre-programmed to flicker and two red fairy lights. I added a resistor to the red fairy lights so that the group would turn on together. This produced a very red/yellow and flickery flame!

我从同样的双面卡片中切开一个环,我用来椅子和彩色外面的黑色和内部棕色。我用一块透明的塑料来制作一个小的锥形,适合LED,并在顶部添加一些热胶,以制作火坑和床的火。

第9步:制作微小的火木

我把一些树枝从纸板柴火and added some clear acetate flames (although not too many - I thought too many looked a bit cheesy!)

第10步:设置场景

我把所有的作品都放在了我想要的最终场景看的所有作品。我剪了一块新的纸板,充当底座,并确保它能够折叠成面部。我用棕色标记彩色它来使其更加自然(虽然我稍后会覆盖)。

第11步:添加一些细节

I drew some fireflies to glue to the blinking fairy lights and a silhouette of us to glue into the window to be illuminated from behind.

Step 12: Putting It All Together

  • I added two 10mm white LEDs to the circuit to place inside the cabin.
  • 我从10毫米LED,火仙子灯和萤火虫仙灯和萤火虫阳光下堵塞,并测试了太阳能电池板覆盖时的测试。

Step 13: Taking It All Apart (Temporarily)

I disassembled the circuit to make it easier to add to the terrarium. I placed the circuit board and battery in a small bag to keep them together.

Step 14: Building the Scene!

我一次添加了一个元素,以构建玻璃玻璃玻璃中的场景:

  • I added the moss to the bottom
  • Then the circuit laid inside the moss
  • 我将太阳能电池板连接到月球上,并用清晰的安装胶带将其粘在玻璃内
  • I folded the base piece of cardboard in half to place it on top, and connected all the wires.
  • I added the cabin
  • 然后是树木
  • 然后我撒上污垢的咖啡
  • Next, I positioned the fireflies where I wanted them
  • I added the Adirondack Chairs and fire pit on top.

Step 15: Night Time!

我已经完成了!夜晚(或当我覆盖太阳能电池板)时,我现在有一个可爱的小光秀,让我想起了我们的惊人旅行!

    When I first saw those silhouettes, I thought they were aliens :D
    绝对是很多工作,但结果很棒。感谢分享!

    哈哈,我完全思考了 - 他们非常“e.t.”!剪影是我最后的最后一件事 - 我匆匆穿过他们,我希望我没有。:P.

    If I could change one thing, I would spend more time designing the shape of the silhouettes AND their placement- too much light is leaking around the sides because they aren't close enough to the window plastic. It does look more “human” in person (the camera gets overexposed by the light in that area) but the overall shape could be better.

    我在想剪影将是一个小细节,你只有在看着玻璃瓶后才会注意到,但在我建造它之后,我意识到窗户是一个主要的焦点!

    Doh! Well, creative projects are all about learning, so maybe this story is helpful to the next person making a backlit silhouette!

    感谢您的客气话!:D.
