Introduction: Glowing Shisha/Hookah
How to make your Shisha/Hookah glow - the easy and cheap way.
just came up with the idea as i was cleaning my shisha. i noticed the wrinkle underneath it and remembered the led throwies. so i put it together. might not work with every shisha - just try if you can mount the leds underneath it.
Step 1: The Materials
This is what you'll need:
- a small piece of aluminium foil
- a small piece of strong paper
- 2 or 3 LED - choose the color you like, but should be diffuse LEDs
- 2 or 3 CR 2032 3V batteries
- 2 or 3 rubberbands
- some sticky tape
makes about 0.50$ for each battery and LED - the rest is more or less free
Step 2: Setting Up the LEDs
Just put the rubberband tightly around the battery, get the LED between the band and the battery et voilá. that's it.
you may have to bend the LED slightly to avoid flickering.
Step 3: Cut Paper and Foil
Now cut the paper und the foil to a round shape. tape the foil to the paper and assemble the LEDs to the foil.
tape the paper under the bottom of the glass und you're finished.
Step 4: Smoke and Enjoy
could be improved by some switch or a color-changing led. doing it my way you have to pull the leds from the batteries to put 'em out. a led on the hose would also look nice, i guess.
