Default Small encased outdoor single LED

I've been thinking about this for awhile.

I want to back lite a star. ~18" point to point. I envision a half globe lense including a weatherproof cover for a maybe a small LED that will fit a single device box?

anybody?

We use LED modules to backlight LED reverse channel letters.
Maybe this is what you are looking for:

I really like the Kelvin brightness scale at the bottom of this link.

That's a real nice step light fixture. I think it would put out plenty of light for your 18" star. It says it's good for damp locations but is it good for wet locations? The design is similar to a typical 12v step light that would be used outdoors but it's 120 volt and says “any indoor or protected environment”.
I wonder if it comes with a gasket and would be suited for outdoor use.

Yes you can. Just make sure the voltage is the same. Don't get a cheap one off the web from over seas. The price might be mush less but I have had bad luck with many of them that I got through e-bay. Lowes and Home Depot carry them. Good luck on your project.
