Step 1: Assemble the materials
Before we get started, lets take a look at the Fibre Flare
If you take a close look at the 2nd picture you will notice the hunk of plastic sort of looks like a glue stick from a hot glue gun. Glue stick? What is an Instructable without a glue stick? What happens when an LED is shined into an actual glue stick? Believe it or not, it actually lights up like a glow stick! What is so cool about this is that the glue stick is a very low cost diffuser. The diffuser spreads the LED light so it is visible 360 degrees.
Step 3: Prepare the glue stick
I want to build this as cheaply as possible, so that limits me to using a 9v battery as the power clip runs about 25 cents off of Ebay. I also purchased a lot of 3mm blue LEDs from a Chinese seller on Ebay and a pack of resistors. The most expensive item here is the 9v battery. The wire I used was reclaimed from a discarded cat 5 networking cable
