outdoor display animation

I bought an Arduino Uno Rev 3 and have started playing with creating or modifying a couple of basic sketches. My eventual goal is to create 2 outdoor displays. A Rolling and/or Spinning Pumpkin and Falling Snow Flakes. Can this be done with an Uno? I know I need plenty of external power and programable LED's, WS2811's or similar. I am waiting on delivery of my first LED string so I can see how those work.

As in a previous post (I cannot find) I mentioned I do soldering, high/low voltage wiring, etc. so assembly type work is not an issue.

Any guidance would be appreciated. Also thanks to those who responded to my first post.



Your post is confusing... There no such thing as an Arduino Zero Rev 3. Are you possibly confusing the Uno Rev 3 with the Zero?
