the star blinks from green to blue about once every second
here's a closer picture of the tree so you can see the bows and balls better. the bows are just ribbon and the balls are just gathered glittered tulle. i like that i have nothing breakable on the tree.
i am really happy with how it turned out. maybe next year i will get some kind of beaded garland, like gold or winter white, or something. anyway, i really like my tree. it's simplistic and sweet.
