Notes: For this hack, we start with components taken from a Glove . The board LEDs are snipped off and the leads fitted with female-female Dupont cables. Diffused RGB LEDs are inserted into the end and slipped into fabric rose buds from the Dollar Store. Florist tape conceals the wiring and the assembly is placed into a vase. Good for anytime but do think about Valentines Day!

We Made With Magic (MWM) Ear Hat owners may feel a bit jealous during the daytime when comparing our plain, white ears to the ornate decorations of their non-MWM cousins.  But, just because they don't come off the kiosk with adornments, there's no reason they have to stay that way.

One relatively quick, easy and cheap way to spruce up those ears is with removable decals.  Rotate 'em to suit your mood, occasion or season.  Print up a new batch.  Cut 'em out and add adhesive.  Stick 'em on.  Enjoy.  Repeat as necessary. 

Reimagining a World of Color Sipper Cup as Vase

This hack is dead simple. From the moment I first saw this, the "cup" reminded me more of a vase than a soft-drink vessel. The transition is an easy one. Take the cup liner out and throw in some artificial flowers, instead. Without the cup liner, the rest of the product is not water sealed. So you can't use this for real flowers unless the cup liner is replaced with something that is designed to hold water.
