Sure.I've made controllers with 555's etc.Here's my advice : don't bother.

Go and buy led strips with a controller.I'd suggest the same stuff I just installed ; addressable RGB strip.

It's a 1/2" wide 'tape' of leds.each led can do any color.each 3 leds is a 'pixel'.The controller can not only make em flash , but can scroll/fade colors/etc...

-I won't lie , it's not cheap unless you get a deal, but if you are doing case lighting or something , you can prolly get away with 100$.
