Step 1: Step 1, Materials
First, find something good to be made into a pencil, like a stick or pen cap. Even a gaterade cap will do.
Glue, I prefer school glue.
Pencil led, the way I did this was to cut a pencil in half long ways and pry the led out.
Step 2: Step 2
fill gaterade cap half way with glue with led in the hole and set to dry. To make sure it doesn't spill you can set between books.
Step 3: Step 3
For the pen cap just do the same, but for a stick you drill the longer size hole. Then stick the led in. The hole is longer so you can fill halfway with glue and stick the led into the glue without overflowing it.
