MÖRKT Tea Light Lantern Goes LED
Materials: MÖRKT Lantern, Flexible LED Ribbon, 12 Volt Battery Pack, and a 2-Position Rotary Switch
Description: So to start off, I needed to drill a few holes into the lantern, 1st in the base for the installation of the rotary switch, and 2nd through the tea light tray to run leads into the hollow open base.
Next I cut the flexible LED ribbon just long enough to fit inside the tea light tray. Doing so gave me access to wire the LED to the switch and the battery pack that would store in the hollow base.
Lastly, I cut a small piece of Luan to fit snugly into the base to hold the contents safely in place!
