Step 1: Materials
- Saran Wrap
- Hot glue gun and sticks (For some sparkle, use glitter glue sticks)
- 2 LEDs
- Needle nose pliers
- Tape (Clear packing tape or duct tape)
- 3-V battery (CR3202)
- Glitter (optional)
- Toothpick or stir straw (optional)
Step 2: Cut and Wind Your Saran Wrap
Begin wrapping a bow shape with the saran wrap making two loops. Do this a couple of times. When you are finished, you should have small length left over. Wrap it around itself in the center and just tuck it away into itself. It is a basic bow making technique. Fluff up the bow with your fingers. See video for details.
Step 3: Hot Glue to Give the Bow Structure
(Add glitter at this juncture if you want a little sparkle on your bow)
Step 4: Light Up the LEDs
Tape the LEDs into place by putting tape on both sides of the battery and lights. Make sure the tape covers the edges of the battery and trim the edges.
If you want, you can try the LED battery box instead, but remember you need TWO LEDs https://www.instructables.com/id/Tealed-Led-Battery-Box-not-glue-nor-solder/
Step 5: Finish by Inserting the Light Into Your Bow
Add your bow to any of your gifts or wreath or whatever project you have. The battery should last a couple days if it’s fresh.
BONUSFor a really cute gift-wrap topper, make a pom pom using this technique from Creature Comforts (make sure to still use saran wrap!), 1 LED, and stencil paint on the tips of the saran wrap.
