    Lovely! Would make great gifts.

    What kind of battery operated lights did you use for night display?

      Thank you a lot. I used a simple battery operated led string in white color. I got it of from a toy store but you can find it easily in stores (or even ebay) and it is very cheap 1-2 euros (1.15 - 2.30 $).
