Maybe you recently got an Arduino starter kit as a gift, or maybe you keep hearing about this awesome tinker hobby and want to give it a try, or maybe you’re an Arduino pro who just needs some fun ideas for the holiday season. If so, you have come to the right place.
1. Movement Greeting Wreath
This simple project can be a great way to set the mood when visitors arrive for the holidays. Using a motion sensor and mounted in a hanging wreath, it plays a pre-recorded message followed by a random Christmas song.
It can take hours to create and set up, but the instructions are simple and there’s nothing particularly complicated about it; assembly is easy and the code is painless. A good beginner place for beginners who want to improve their skills.
2. Advent candle
This Arduino Christmas Candle comes with 25 LED lights, one for each December day leading up to Christmas, and a great effect to show which day you are on. It also has a button that plays «Jingle Bells» when pressed. Ideally you should do it in November and be done by the 30th, but it’s still worth doing even if you’re late.
3. Musical garlands
In this beginner’s project, you combine multiple LED lights to create a fabulous decoration in which each light flashes randomly. This is a great project to create an atmosphere. The lights are simple but really work to bring the feeling of Christmas.
The best part? It is not simple instructions, but the present management . You will learn something which is great for beginners. If you’re not entirely comfortable, start with our complete Arduino guide.
