 Insert an LED, ensuring the longer lead goes into the hole with the + sign next to it. Solder the leads and clip off the excess. Repeat for remaining LEDs. Insert an LED, ensuring the longer lead goes into the hole with the + sign next to it. Solder the leads and clip off the excess. Repeat for remaining LEDs.

 +**Note**: The array will look better if all of the LEDs are properly aligned. This is most easily done by inserting all of LEDs in a column of four, then soldering just one of the leads of each LED. You can then gently press on the LED while reheating the solder joint, which will seat the LED flat against the board. Once you have a column aligned, solder the other LED leads in the column and clip them.

 +(Since the lead spacing is much smaller across the 5-LED rows than the 4-LED columns, it's easier to work along the shorter columns. You may accidentally fill adjacent lead holes with solder if you work across rows.)
