This is a simple concept idea of " canned" or "bottled light". It uses few parts, and some recycled material. Shown is my final product.

Total time to assemble: about 30 minutes.

Step 1: Materials

Tube-like container (I used a Lays Stax container)
9 Volt battery
2 pairs of alligator clips
2 LEDs
220 Ohm Resistor
Stripped copper wire (or paper clips)
Paper clip

Pliers (not needed, but helpful)
Sharp object, like a knife (not pictured, but hidden inside pliers/multi-tool)
