DIY LED Gloves and How to Make Them
You will need cotton gloves in black or white color; two button battery holders, four button batteries, ten LEDs with red, green and blue as preferred colors, two rocker switches that should never be temporary on, thin wire, needle and thread, and electrical tape.
- Have the LEDs wired first to the wires. Ensure that you can distinguish between the positive and negative sides and have the ends of the wires stripped. The wires long enough so that it reaches the wrist. Ensure that you know the colors of the wires connected to the LEDs and wrap the end of the LED wires in electrical tape. Ensure that you tape one end first and the other end next, ensuring that the positive and negative ends do not touch each other.
- Reverse the gloves inside out. Then cut a small slit at each finger tip. Wear the glove to know which side is up. Then sew all the wires at the tip of the glove.
- Have the LEDs sewn to the fingertips. Let the needle pass through the glove, and allow it to wrap around the LEDs before sewing it back to the glove. Ensure that it is tightly done and do the same procedure for all fingertips.
- The wires should be sewn near the finger joints of the glove to keep them steady. When you wire them, have all positive ends wired together in one single wire. You also need to do that for the negative ends. The ends are then stripped together, and twisted to make a single wire. Never make them loose.
- Then one side of the wire (negative) is attached to a switch’s prongs. The positive side should also go to the other side. Wire the negative side to a battery holder. Do the same on the positive side.
- Once done, have all wires sewn into the gloves to make them steady and clean. Have all open wires covered with tape for precautionary measures. You can then install button cell batteries to the gloves.
