How to Make Battery Operated Candles
(candle image by Zbigniew Nowak from

Battery-operated candles are operated using a battery and LED. The battery is placed inside the plastic mould. Battery operated candles are eco-friendly as they do not have a flame or create heat. But they create the same feel as a wax candle. They are safe near children. Unlike wax candles they do not require any cleaning. Making your own battery operated candles saves a lot of money when compared to store-bought versions.

    Connect the resister wires to the wires of the battery connector. Twist the wires over each other and wrap them up with electrical tape. Connect the battery to the battery connector.

    Connect the LED wire to the battery connector. Connect a switch to the connector so that you can turn off the candle to conserve energy.

    Turn the switch on to make the LED glow.
