3-4 v jumbo LED Electrical tape Cutting tool ( optional) 3 v coin battery Plier Glue Pen spring Reg tape Hi this is my first instructable and I hope it works , have fun!

Step 2: The LED

Bend the wires apart and add hot glue in beetween as shown then bend the wires. In addition hot glue is not needed and can be replaced with tape

Step 3: Adding the Battery

Test the polarity before taping it , then after you tape it wrap it in electrical tape

Step 4: Adding the Spring

This makes it not able to stay on by accident just cut the spring to size and glue it

    Great! I've been thinking really hard about how to add a switch to an LED-button battery combination and never really got anywhere. This is perfect!

    I have taught myself basic electronics but resistor values kind of confuse me

    It would not hurt to look into adding a resistor that matches the LED, this will improve the lifetime of the battery (and the LED) without adding much complexity. you do not even need to solder it, gluing it on the leg of the LED (making sure there is metal-to-metal contact) will be just fine in this case. Now with the "negative" out of the way I want to say that its a great detailed instructable and your pictures are really good.
