Step 1: What you need.
Skewers (the sticks used to make shish kabobs)
Power supply (I used a 12V power supply)
Resistors (I used 560 ohm resistors, but the resistance you need will vary depending on the supply voltage. You can use this site to calculate the resistance. http://ledcalc.com/ )
Glue (Elmer's Glue works fine)
Glaze / finish
Hot glue gun
Soldering iron (with a small tip for electrical work)
Step 2: Base Structure
To connect the joints of the skewers, use masking tape which can be reinforced with a hot glue gun. The masking tape is good at first because it is flexible which is good when joining the two skewers together. The glue helps solidify the structure.
