First, part of my dissatisfaction with this item is my own fault...i obviously did not read the description well enough, but i just assumed that for $** i was purchasing the entire lighted wreath, not a cheap set of teeny tiny lights (for $**), seriously??? Secondly, in addition to being overpriced and thus misleading, the lights did not work. I tried the "try me" button, and nothing, no light. Because I knew i would be returning this hugely overpriced item anyeay,i didnt even bother to waste the time to cut them from the package, insert batteries, and see if they worked that way. I am usually really satisfied with overstocks merchandise, but this was a huge 'miss' on their part. Who in their right mind would pay $** for just a very, very small string of battery operated lights??? Needless to say, I will be returning this item.
