Introduction: How to Make a Glowing LED Sea Shell Light

About: My name is Joe. I don't use this site that much anymore because I am lame but you will find some my instructables from a while back that I wrote up. I'm really sorry if they are poorly written, don't make a ...

Hi,
In this simple instructable I am going to show you how to create a glowing sea shell that looks really nice. It is very easy to make and very cheap.

Step 1: Materials

Materials
LED- I used a 10mm RGB self cycling LED. 15-50 Cents. You can take an LED pretty much any old electronic device or buy them online. Radio shack sells them for an arm and a leg.
Coin Cell Battery- I used the CR2032. Very Common. You can get them at radio shack or online. Even Big Grocery Stores have them. They cost any where from 20 cents a piece online to close to $5 dollars at radioshack.
Electrical tape- About 5cm. You could even use duct tape.
Shell- Any shell that is big enough to fit an LED in.

Step 2: Assembly

Assembly is simple.
Just make an LED Throwie. Then Stick it inside the shell and your done. It looks great and is a great night light/ mood light.
Thanks for reading!

    Heh. I actually like this quite a bit. Simple, yet I never would have thought of it. Bigger pics/video of the finished product would be nice. +1
