  1. Where does it plug in? Is it battery powered? You said make sure the cord is at the bottom. Great idea I want to copy, just not sure about the cord. Thanks.

      I’ve seen some lighted branches at Walmart and they were battery powered so I’m guessing these ones are also. I’m sure there are lighted branches out there with cords if you didn’t want the hassle of changing out the batteries. And I’m sure you could work around the cord if you did choose that route.
