In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to make a LED bulb with a glue stick in simple and easy-to-implement steps.

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. They emit light when current flows through them. LED lights have many advantages like low power consumption and prices, and long life. You can also replace high voltage bulbs with LED lights which are more environment-friendly and budget-friendly.


To make LED lights, we need some tools and materials which are listed below.



  • Glue stick
  • Old USB cable and charger
  • Fevicol
  • Rubber
  • Plastic bottle cap
