This was meant for someone just getting into radioelectronics so it isnt the best light around.

Take the led and bend about 3 milimeters of it 90 degrees.
next tape it to the battery.

Then curve the other prong.

Note:you do not want the curved prong to touch the battery therefore you will want to bring it up and away from the battery.

Step 3: Finishing Up

Now we are going to put it all together.

First we cut out a cardboard circle.(make sure it is big enough to cover the entire cap)

next tape it to the curved prong

put a dab of glue on the cap and put everything together.

when everything is dry put a ring of glue around the outer edge of the cardboard

to seal it all together.

Step 4: Finished
