I would also like to know how to attach lights. I saw some mini christmas lights at Hancocks the other day, think battery operated. And I have a pattern for a pieced christmas tree that I was thinking of doing something like this. But I didn't know how to get it so the lights were stabilized on the front, with the battery pack or plugs on the back. I was thinking maybe tiny grommets but they wouldn't be that tiny to be able to thread the other lights through. Tell us oh wise magician.. how do you work such twinkly magic.. It's beautiful.
