I had two goals with this, one don't solder and two make it like post over on gizmodo showing a 9V Lantern. I had recieved a few emails ...
Parts: 9v battery flashlight bulb bulb mount film canister 9v battery snap connector hot glue
So wire your light bulb mount up, I just stripped the ends of the wire and twisted them around the posts. Remember I am trying not to solder ...
put some hot glue on the bottom of the bulb base/socket/thingamajig and glue it to the bottom of the film canister.
cut out the inner ring of the film canister lid, this should be big enough to fit the top of the battery in snugly.
So drop the top on, run the 9v battery snap connector through and bask in the glory of the lantern like ambiance.
