Step 1: Materials

Ok Gather your materials:

Poland springs bottle( i used eco shaped)
Duct tape(dark color)
Scotch tape( not shown)
Dot-it light( $9.00 at home depot)
scissors or knife

Step 2: Taking Shape

Have you ever looked at the bottom of a poland springs water bottle? it looks like an arc reactor. so thats what i decided to make version 2 out of. simple and fast. you could probably even make this at school or in the office! take your bottle and cut the end off. cut it pretty close to the end like shown.

Step 3: Taking Shape.

take you duct tape and cut off a little more than an inch. cut Strips slightly bigger than the indents on the bottle. put them in the indents and make sure they go onto the other side. they need to be 2 layers or they will be see through.

Step 4: Attaching the Light

cut off two pieces of scotch tape and put one on each side. center it on the dot-it light and tape it.

Step 5: Finally Done

you could now attach a string as a necklace and where it. or however you want to attach it

    yeah but there is a substance that you can put on glass to make it blurry and put it over the light

    i used metal tape instead of duct tape-it looks cooler and you only need one layer.

    hey iwillspy13 i know your reactors are made for under the shirt but if you want a little detail you could put copper pieces of metal on each piece of tape i don't know i just think i would look cool
