Make a Working Miniature Light House With a Light Emitting Diode (LED)


LED's are useful for making small scale lights for miniature scenes as they can be wired in or battery powered and they don't give off much heat.

This is an easy project in several scales which can be built with or without a working light. The dolls house scale project is based on using beads and an LED, but the project can easily be modified for other scales using scraps of balsa wood. The simple Step by Step instructions have a materials list and show you how to build the miniature lighthouse in step by step photos.
