If you’re looking for a super simple project to get started with Arduino programming, this DIY blinking Christmas Tree blinker is a great first-timer’s project.

As part of the Arduino series at MakeUseOf they’ve put together a simple tutorial on programming an Arduino board to control a little LED Christmas tree. It’s a festive take on a simple programming project and a great way to get your feet wet playing with the Arduino board and some LEDs. Hit up the link below for more information.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
