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. 

Step 1: Step 1: Parts, Tools, Supplies - oh my!

Parts / Supplies:
- Arduino Uno
- Blue Through-Hole LEDs: $17.60 for 100 [Mouser]

- WIRE, 20AWG, STRN, WHITE: $10.95 for 100ft [Jameco]
