Ed Beal has it right but you need to think about how you want to control the lights. If in parallel with the fan any time the fan is on the LEDs will also be on which is okay if that's what you want.

Your cord penetration needs to either be grommeted, or use a proper cable clamp in a standard knockout hole. They sell junction box covers with standard knockout holes. Mechanically, what you did is fine as long as the projector weighs less than 4 pounds. If it weighs more, you need to properly tie into the fan support structure in the way that you might ...
