Christmas Tree Kit with Conductive Yarn Garland


SKU: GC-HOL-002-KIT Category:


Make your own tiny light up Christmas Tree and learn about Electric Circuits

This kit gives practice with connecting electric circuits. You will build a cute tree you can display on your desk, or give as a gift!

Recommended for ages 8 and up.

No soldering necessary. The only tool needed is a pair of scissors. It uses conductive yarn as a decorative and functional electrical circuit to light an LED star at the top of the tree. A small-powered battery reduces risk of shock. The resistance of the conductive yarn, simplifies the circuit because we don’t need to add a resistor.

There are several skills we will practice, which will help you a lot in future efforts for building things.

  • Get an overview of the project.
    this helps you to catch yourself sooner if you get off track
  • Following directions step-by-step.
    this makes projects MUCH simpler, and usually faster!
  • Test each step along the way.
    by testing at each step, you catch mistakes early, when they are easier to find and fix!

Kit contains:

  • 2 complementary Acrylic Tree parts with marked holes for conductive yarn “garland”
  • 2 pieces of conductive yarn
  • 1 red LED (plus an extra one)
  • 1 battery holder
  • 1 CR2032 battery
  • 2 Alligator clips for testing during the build
