A 5 minute project that reminds one of a LED throwie, just you hold it instead of throwing it. (I guess you call it a LED Holdie)

Step 1: Supplies
nail or screw
Step 2: Prepare Glustick
first cut your glue stick in half. (you can heat your knife but I never do).
Now, holding your nail with your pliers (safety first) hold it in the flame of the lighter till it's good and hot. Stick the hot nail into one side of the glue stick and kind of circle it. (your trying to make a hole that will fit the LED).
Step 3: Put in the LED
reheat the screw and melt some of the glue in hole and push the LED in as far as it will go.
Now you are done. Continue to next step if you don't understand how to use it.
Step 4: How to Use
take the battery and put it between the LED leads and press together to create a connection. If it doesn't work then try switching the direction of the battery or getting a new battery.
