Picture of Beheaded Doll Night Light
This is a Beheaded Doll Night Light.  It automatically turns on when it gets dark!

I am going to walk through how to create a Beheaded Doll Night Light such as the one I made.  This was inspired by Bot1398's Instructable "Light Sensing LEDs" and is primarily the foundation for this Instructable with my own added twist.
