Picture of $3 LED Headlamp
Ok, so this is my entry into the hack It Challenge.  Here, we're going to use two separate lights to make one awesome headlamp!. Let me first stipulate that $3 depends on you materials cost, it may be higher or lower, but either way you get a decent lamp out of it. 

Disclaimer:  A soldering iron is used in this instructable, barely, but its a good idea to know what you're doing with one.

Step 1: Materials and tools
