So you want a little light but you don't want to have to worry about dropping it? You've come to the right place! You can make this out of most things you find around the house, with the exception of the switch or push button. Don't worry, it may sound hard but it's very easy and all you need to know is how to hook an LED to a button-cell battery. There is no need to solder anything unless you want to.

Step 1: What you need

You will need:
  • Two soda bottle caps
  • Some wires
  • Hot glue gun
  • Pen cap
  • One LED (any color, I used white)Superbright would be best but I didn't have one
  • Button-cell batteries (enough to power the LED)
  • One switch or push button thingy
  • X-acto knife
