Simple, still cool, would also work for Easter Eggs! :)

- Switch

- Li Ion button cell 3V (no resistor needed for green LEDs)

Step 2: Instructional Video

The steps:

1. Try to saw a cap of, as straight as possible

2. Flip the cap and glue it back in (from the inside)

3. Drill 5 holes (diameter matching the outer diameter of your plexi rod)

4. Put the shere back together, paper clip through the hole and apply spraypaint (grey)

7. Wire the LEDs together, connect LEDs to switch, switchs to battery

8. Drill the main hole and the 2 mounting holes for the switch, then put the sphere back together

9. Turn it into a true death star, using your marker (draw the paneling as you like) and done !
