I recommend getting walmart tea light votive candles. This is a case where walmart's drive to drop the price as far as they can plays really well for us. They use fewer parts then anyone else, so this means that it's literally just a few plastic pieces, a flickering yellow led and a battery. When you take it apart, you get an led that isn't soldered to anything, and it's leads aren't clipped, making the torch process easier. Read about this below the instructions.
Important Note: At every step you can, test with a battery base to make sure all the connections are still working fine. You are going to be super unhappy if you glue the back on and then it stops working because you didn't test.
