i need a 12 ohm resistor, but i only have a 10 and a 2. i just got back from the radioshack and i dont want to go all the way back out there just to get this. so i want to solder these 2 togethor and then solder them to the leds. is this possible or do i have to waste precious gas to get that 1 resistor

yes. hook them up in series (one end of one connected to an end of the other) and it'll total 12 ohms.

glad this will work, and 1 more question. im doin that jewel lightup mod and i am stupid. i hot glued the wire on the ground too early and did not add the ground wire itself. Can i solder this to a leg of one of the leds and have it still work?
