Hot Glue LED Diffusion: 5 Steps (with Pictures)

What would I do without LEDs and hot glue? They are integral components to nine tenths of my projects. Well, while I was working on my first instructable I noticed that the LEDs I’d hot glued onto the wires kind of made the translucent glue glow a bit. I thought to myself, “What would happen if I put the glue on the focus end?” And so, this instructable was born. Usually when I’m diffusing a “Water Clear” LED I grab the sandpaper and go to town, but this works just as well if size isn’t a problem, and looks better in the end. ***UPDATE 5/3/10:  Hey, if you make your own Hot Glue diffused LED project and post some pictures in the comments section, I’ll give you a patch!***
