8 Creative Ways to Use LED Lights
LED lights not only help push down your electricity bills, but you can also use them to create something innovative and fun.

You can also add a motion sensor and a timer to ensure the lights aren’t always on.

Thanks to some creative fiddling with your LED lights, your centerpiece of flowers can look good during the night just as it does during the day. This pretty item from Love Creations incorporates the use of LED lights, a simple vase, and some paper flowers.

Instructables can show you how to get this done right.
LED lights are really versatile that they can also great at being waterproof lighting. Your pool or fountain can certainly use that splash (pun intended) of color to help them stand out from other household pools that don’t have them.
