The Power Battery
Instructables user Uniqueutopia has a kid who is really into the Green Lantern, so he mocked up this awesome Power Battery for Christmas. Click the link for full instructions; no soldering or electrical knowledge required.

The Ring
Two different Instructables users offer up plans for the Green Lantern ring. Professional jeweler Honus’s plans offer instructions for casting in silver, green resin, or a translucent resin with an embedded LED. I know if I’m going to the trouble, I’d want my ring to glow.

Instructables user aintMichael gives us a wooden version, if carving’s more your thing:

Over at Craftser, Shala (user SKerri13) offers up charts for a bead-stitched ring:

Charts
Knitters and other needle crafters need not be left out. Shala, over on her website Don’t Eat the Paste, has also put together some knitting charts for the Green Lantern logo. I could see these being used for embroidery or cross-stitching as well.

Good luck! If you know of any other Green Lantern craft tutorials, post the links below!
