LED Throwies posted an excellent link. Follow it to the you tube video, it's great! Thanks for all the help here!

@Krista--You'd probably put them up at dusk and then take them down when you go in for the night. Luckily, they're held together with magnets, so this would only take a minute or two.

Do you leave these constantly on or do you go out every night and put them in place?

Sure would like to see a close-up of the bulb/battery/magnet!

OK, duh me!! Excellent visual description DIY maven, thank you!

@Laura, you slip the button battery between the terminals as instructed, and then use the magnets (which are stuck to the hooks) to sandwich the button between the terminals to keep the lights lit. Make sense?

Ok, visual learner here. Couldn't picture what the LEDS would look like . I looked and found them plenty of places (even colors) but they all have little prongs. I can't wrap my brain around how a flat little battery and a pronged light attach. ?? What am I not getting right here? SOrry for the dumb queston but like I said "visual learner". Thanks CURBLY, I <3 you!
