Ok so before I get started let me just say that the reason I call it a nightlight is because it looks the best in the dark. Also the red looks a lot better in real life versus the photo. You can wire more LEDs together to provide better lighting so you can use it during the day. Now lets get started with supplies and tools.

See step 3 for update.

Step 1: Supplies & Tools

Soldering Iron
Scissors (They don't need to be very sharp)
Dremel (with bit shown in picture)
Sand Paper 100 grit

Krylon Frosted Glass Spray paint
Glass coke bottle
3ft 18 gauge wire
At least one of the following LEDS: 3.7V Blue 2600 mcd 5mm       1.7V Red 3000mcd 5mm       ??V White ≈2000mcd 5mm (you can find these at radio shack amount of LEDs needed depends on when you use it) (You only should need one if you use it at night)
Flux Core Tin-Lead Solder
9V battery clips (radio shack)
9V battery
3 1k Ohm resistors (you really do need these and can find them at radio shack)
This sis great! but where did you get resistors and leds? Home Depot?
You can get them at radio shack. They are fairly cheap, but cheaper if you look online.
I like this thank you.
Amazing! Very helpful!
very nice, thank you
The only thing I may recommend is to use an RGB Led. The fading and changing of colors is something the eye is naturally attracted to. Great 'ible either way I'll probably make a simillar version myself
