Intro: Easy Led Project
This has a few things thrown in from other instructables to make one. Specificly, led throwies and the led 9-volt battery project. Those are some pretty cool things, check them out. This is a led that stands on its own with a film cannister over it to diffuse the light. Sorry for the bad picture quality, and putting a LED project on here.
Step 1: Whatcha Need
To make this instructable, you need:
1.Some leds(more than one looks better)
3.Film cannister(no cap needed)
5.Eletric tape roll(optional)
Step 2: Leds and the Battery
what you do now is take the leds and pinch the part where to wires meet the top of the led. This will make the led hug the battery. Remember not to clip the led wires. Now put the leds on so they all all pointing the same way. After that, bend the wires so that the whole project stands up on its own. Make sure not to cross the positive and negative wires. After thats done, tape it all up so nothing comes loose. Sorry for the bad picture quality here too.
Step 3: Film Cannister and Electrial Tape
now take the film cannister and push it through the eletrial tape roll. If you dont have eletrical tape, thats ok, all it does is elevate the cannister and helps you not be able to see the leds. Now just place the lighting apperatus under the cannister/eletrical tape thing and you're done!
