70's ceramic tree needs lights
I have a beautiful ceramic tree my mother made in the early 70's. It's actually a tree-shaped pile of round ornaments about 14" high and it sits on a beautiful hexagonal base. The entire tree is creamy white and all the balls are accented in metallic gold trim. There are about 25 holes for lights.
So the original light set is long gone and the new mini-light sets out there do not fit the holes. They are too small and the lights slip back inside. Since there are no shops around anymore I would need an online source for a new light set, or ideas on how to get a generic mini-light set to stay in place. The spaces inside the hollow tree are small and awkward to fiddle around in. The light sets with slightly bigger balls are too large in proportion to the tree and look funny.
