Intro: Low-cost Flickering Glow Ball
This is a low cost, easy to make glowing ball. It is made from a 3 for a dollar electronic candle and a plastic shell I got from a 50 cent vending machine. To make it I took apart one of the candles and soldered the LED from it to the LED from an unaltered electronic candle. The shell I spray painted gold on the inside. To use it, all I have to do is turn on the electronic candle, put it inside the shell, and snap it shut. In total darkness it looks cool and can also be part of a costume. It can also be made with just a single candle with the silicon flame on top removed.
