Intro: Make Your Own Bug-Lit, for Far Less!
While at home depot I spotted this and began thinking about how I could make my own, so here it is.
You will need...
- A battery
- LED's that correspond with your battery
- Electrical wire
- Hot Glue
Step 1: Measure, Snip, and Bend
Measure, snip, and bend your stiff wire into the legs with the battery profile in the middle.
Then pull the guts out of your paracord and slip the sheath over your wire, next apply generous hot glue at the ends.
I apologize, I need a new camera(Hint, Hint).
Step 2: Glue, Adhere, and Paste
Glue your legs onto your battery, one at each end.
Step 3: Glue on the ''Eyes'', the Battery Connector, and the Switch
Glue the Eyes at the front and the switch onto the back.
Step 4: Wiring
Attach all of the wires any way you'd like but I'd recommend a series circuit.
Then Insulate all of the connections with hot glue.
