DIY EL Wire Hair Bow Tutorial from Adafruit Learning System here. I saw this on MAKE here and initially thought these bows looked way too hard to DIY and too expensive to make. I then read the entire tutorial and looked over the supply list and it’s not that hard and the materials are pretty cheap ($12 for 8 feet of EL wire and $4.95 for the portable inverter for EL wire). This glowing wire could be used for so many different types of DIYs from accessories to fashion.
