A supporting rod assembly includes a supporting rod made of a transparent plastic material through integral injection molding and having a row of air bubbles formed therein during the injection molding, and at least one receiving head connected to an end of the supporting rod. A light-emitting device having at least one light-emitting diode (LED) is received in the receiving head, such that light emitted from the LED is projected onto the end of the supporting rod to produce gradually changed brightness degrees and color shades along the supporting rod, and thereby creates a luminous decorating effect for an article on which the supporting rod assembly is used. Alternatively, a plurality of light-conducting strips may be embedded in the supporting rod when it is injection-molded. The LED may be conveniently turned on with a vibration-actuated, sound-actuated, or light-actuated switch.
The structure and the technical means adopted by the present invention to achieve the above and other objects can be best understood by referring to the following detailed description of the preferred embodiments and the accompanying drawings, wherein
1. A supporting rod assembly providing luminous decorating effect, comprising a supporting rod and two receiving heads;
2. The supporting rod assembly providing luminous decorating effect as claimed in
3. The supporting rod assembly providing luminous decorating effect as claimed in
4. The supporting rod assembly providing luminous decorating effect as claimed in
