In this simple instructable I am going to teach you how to make an LED mood jar that looks great and only takes minutes to make.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
10mm 15Kmcd Slow Flashing MultiColor RGB LED-I got mine from ebay. They cost around 50 cents US Dollars depending on the quantity. I bought a couple hundred and got a discount (about 15 cents) from this ebay store.. You can either get slow flashing or fast flashing. They don't actually flash, they just change color.
Proper resistor(s) for your LED
9volt battery and snap
Jar- I found one that is diffused a little
Toggle Switch- I bought a one a radioshack
Drill and bit that matches the size of the toggle switch.
Step 2: Assembling the Electronics
Assembly is really easy and quick. First attach the LED to the switch terminals and then attach one leg of the resistor to one leg of the battery snap and to the switch terminal. Then attach the other battery snap wire to the other switch terminal. Try it out. If it does not work, trouble shoot. Make sure that the LED is the correct polarity.
Step 3: Drill the hole
