I live in New Mexico, most of our buildings are made out of Stucco or Adobe, or frame and board. So I was afraid we would run out of good ferris surfaces to "throwie"
Also figuring we would run out of magnets I stopped by the store for some fishing line, and hence the "snaggie" was invented, they work quite well on trees during the winter.
A snaggie is just an LED a battery a loop of fishing line and some tape (these are cheaper to make than throwies due to the lack of a magnet)
Step 1: Bend the LED Legs
So i bend the legs into a JJ shape. (see photohttps://www.instructables.com/files/deriv/FJT/BVL2/FCHYNTP8/FJTBVL2FCHYNTP8.MEDIUM.jpg
Step 2: Affix the "snag", Tie a Loop to the LED
Step 3: Put the Led on the Battery
Pretty simple put the battery between the JJ's of the LED's legs, +batteryside goes to the longer leg. and the -side to the shorter leg(you have a 50/50 just flip the battery if it does not light up.)
sometimes i will slip in a bit of wax paper (or in this case a bit of plastic backing from some velcro, so i can keep it off until i pull the tab)
Step 4: Tape It Up, and You Are Done!
now make a bunch of them because they are pretty fun to toss since you can twirl them on the line and then fling them in a big arc way up into trees. (or other snaggable surfaces)
If you are interested in photos of our throwies, and snaggies, heres a link to my flickr photos, and a site listing a bunch of my fellow throwers.
