Step 1: Materials

These are the main items. The dollar store electronic candle and the scrapbook sticker.

Step 2:

Take off the mainbody of the candle. It has a battery, a switch, the special LED, and a silicon "Flame".

Step 3:

These are two scrap pieces of foamboard. First I cut out a hole to fit the bottom of the candle, then glued them both together.

Step 4:

Then I glued the bottom of the candle into the hole. The LED protrudes above the foamboard.

Step 5:

Then I cut a small hole just large enough to feed the LED through. After that I peeled the backing off the sticker and pressed it onto the foamboard.

Step 6:

After that I carefully bent the LED  and put the silicon flame back onto the LED. Then I trimmed away the excess foamboard.

    All that would be needed are brooch pins to glue to the back and gold ribbon to cover the edges. That or as a pendant... With halloween coming up this could be a good seller.

    With the LED turned on. The LED is designed to flicker like a candle flame and comes with a replaceable battery. This could be useful as a pin, a brooch, or a costume piece or decoration.
