Not to much needed in the way of tools.
first you need a sharp knife of some sort. I used a box cutter.
A pair of needle nose pliers.
You might need a small drill with a bit. I used a cordless because I can can control the speed better.
parts needed are:
a Bottle
a battery operated tea light. Picked them up at the local buck or two store for 2 for a buck.
a short piece of wire, use sold wire if you can find it, or string if you want.

Could you turn off the lights and take a photo of it lit indoors?
