An easy project the whole family can take part in! Besides, with Valentine's just around the corner, what better way to surprise your loved one?

You will need these items:

  • One (1) Sock
  • Two (2) LEDs per puppet, or more, depending on your style
  • Two (2) watch batteries (One for each LED)
  • Electrical Tape
  • Yarn or other accessories for decoration
  • Hand

Please give me some positive ratings if you liked this! Leave comments too!

Step 1: Sock It To Me

Put the sock on your hand. Test it out a bit. Make sure the thing has likeability and potential to be all that a sock puppet can be.

Grab your LEDs. Locate where you want your eyes to be and poke the LEDs through the sock. Make sure you poke them through the spaces between your fingers, and not into your fingers! Finally, turn you sock inside out, revealing the guts of the sock! (Plus the LED leads)
what is a led?
It's a light emitting diode. If you want the scientific definition, it's the emission of photons as electrons move from n-type semiconductor to p-type semiconductor (the holes).<br/><br/>More here:<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Light-emitting_diode">LEDs</a><br/>

Nice job! I'd love to see a SMD wearable one! By the way, why did you put this in the RealSimple group?
Thanks! I just need some conductive thread, and this thing could look really nice... And I accidentally clicked the RealSimple group... how can I get it out? Haha.
Heh, cool and cute idea! I would definitely love to do this and show this to my little cousins and stuff, they would most certainly enjoy it!
