This I'ble will show you how to craft a neat and simple portable lamp from a recycled water bottle. Not only will it shed its light for hours on end it will create a talking piece to prompt others to join in our fight to save the globe.
Save these valuable bottles and recycle/upcycle them any way you can!
Lets build our LED lamp.
This is a entry to the "Keep the bottle" contest. Please take the time to vote if you think the idea, is worth me getting a prize for it. I would really enjoy the prize, so please vote.
