I have always been fond of extraordinary objects which capture other's attention. I recently experienced creating a Led lamp and would like to share the outcome with you. This option homemade suitable for children's room, and for the bedroom. In order to make the nightlight a starry sky with your own hands, first of all, prepare the following materials:

  • two transparent plastic tubes of different diameter;
  • LEDs of suitable brightness and color; 
  • big plug; 
  • glass pebbles;
  • a piece of wire;
  • glue;
  • pliers;
  • charge for LEDs. 
  1. Using pliers, bend the ends of the LED bulbs, as shown in the photo.
  2. Connect all the LEDs with a piece of wire in parallel. Pay attention to polarity.
  3. Connect the two ends of the wire to the finished circuit board.
  4. Turn on the executive part of the night light and check how it works. If the bulbs warm up, add a resistor to the circuit.
  5. Paste the smaller tube to the larger one.
  6. Pour glass beads into the resulting void.
  7. Put the plug with the LEDs on the tube. If the diameter of the cork is larger than the tube, we recommend making a seal (it can be from a leather strap glued inwards, as shown in the photo)
  8. Turn on the finished LED luminaire.


This simple technique allows you to make an LED nightlight in the nursery with your own hands. As you can see, everything is quite simple and will not take more than half an hour to create.
