This was a fun experiment to try to see if it was possible to embed battery powered lights into epoxy resin.
Spoiler: it totally worked! The lights still worked after being encased in epoxy. Read on to see how I did it.
I started putting in the lights on the far right side. I added one light each, then doubled back adding a second to each mold. When I got back to the first one I determined how many lights I needed to leave out so that the next two would end with two only. The excess between the top two and bottom will allow the entire row to stand in a continuous row.
This was another successful experiment. I wasn't sure the lights would actually work after being encased in the epoxy, but as you can see they did.
These lights don't have the timer feature, but that's what I would recommend as they will come on everyday at the same time.
The trees are the perfect addition to our mini ladder tree!
