Picture of Worlds Simplest LED Light!

Step 1: Matierials

Picture of Matierials

1. LED's (bought 20 from radio shack)

2. Watch batteries (2 from radio shack)

3. Masking tape (I hope you know were to get tape)

Step 2: Assembling LED and Battery

Picture of Assembling LED and Battery

1. Take the shorter side of the wire on the LED and put it on the (-) side of the battery and the longer on the (+) side

2. Bend the shorter side upwards into a v shape

3. Bend the longer side so it doesn't touch the battery

4. Slide the LED as far as in you can on the battery

Step 3: Taping

Picture of Taping

1. On the (-) side of the battery put an approximate 2 inch piece of tape

2. Fold the tape under the longer side of the battery

3. Put and approximate 1/2x2 cm piece of tape on the longer side of the LED but don't cover the end

4. scrape the tape from below the tip of the long side of the LED (forgot to take a picture of that)

Step 4: Finished!
