    I posted this over on the US DIY boards but thought yall might do Halloween too.

    I got my PixaBulbs from Todd over the 4th weekend. I designed up a mount base for them so they are easy to attach to foam or real pumpkins. I don't know if they will fit other PixaBulb strands as I only have these to work with.

    (Unfortunately at 0:33 I misspoke the website for the LEDs)

    Couldn't figure out the syntax for inline video here. Sorry. If anyone wants to chime in with the correct syntax for video link, I will edit this OP.

    Looks great, Its things like this is when a 3D printer is extremely handy as you can custom design your own clips to suit your own application

    Rofl! Yea, but then I would have orange wire strung about! I think green will disappear between the pumpkins better than orange would.
