So i made a led lighted monster energy can, and this is my first instructable so I'm not too sure if this is very good but, this shouldent be very difficult to built, it took me about one hour maybe to do this.

-For this project you need dremel tool for cutting and grinding, you can use pliers also for cutting,
-something about 10x 8 plexi glass
-Can of monster
-3 or 4 leds 
-12 volt power supply( depends on how many leds do you use)
-Hot air blower( I dont know the real term of this tool)
-Hot glue

I'm sorry if my english is bad :D

Step 1: Cutting Off the Monster Logo Out of the Can

Use dremel tool for cutting it of and grind it so there is no ''bad spots''
I'm sorry for not having a better picture of this.

Step 2: Cutting the Plexi and Making It to Half Round

so now cut the plexi with dremel or what ever you want use.
Make it a half round with hot air gun.
Picture below

Step 3: Grinding Plexi

Use 400 or 800 sandpaper to make it smooth

Step 4: Grinding the Leds

Use same sandpaper to smooth leds surface

Step 5: Glue Plexi Inside the Can

Cut off the top of the can and glue the plexi inside

Step 6: Drill Holes for Leds

Now drill 5mm or 3mm hole for leds and glue them in

Step 7: Soldering Wires

Solder wires from leds to power suplly or battery or whatever you want to use. I'm sorry but for this i dont have a tutorial
After that it shoull be ready. Thanks for viewing this project!
I really like your instructable. Keep up the good work :)
Thanks :)
You probably mean heat gun? the alternative is a hair dryer, but that probably isn't hot enough. <br> <br>You can probably avoid the plexi if you use parchment or wax paper. You can also fill the can with crumpled wax/parchment-paper to diffuse the light a bit more. <br> <br>Also, you don't have any current limiting resistors on the LEDs. This means you need to balance the total voltage drop of the LEDs to the supply. If it doesn't match, you will have too much or too little current to the LEDs. Wiki tells me blue LEDs have a 2.8-3.7 Vf depending on the diode. <br> <br>Also, try sanding the top of the LED flat (take off the dome) if you want more diffusion. A file works well.
Thanks for comment, as I said my english is little bad maybe, and I do know I dont need resistors but I used them anyways :D
