The Tree is made from Great stuff foam about 2 cans 16oz(Dow Company Great Stuff) 2 of the 8 in. x 48 in. Concrete Form Tube (find at home depot of Lowes) $8.45 each.I light the tree with one of the (10W RGB Color Changing LED Flood Light for Outdoor and Indoor with Cord and Plug and Remote Control) You can find them on Amazon and on ebay for about $10.00 dollars. If you buy more then one here is a tip. Label the light and the remote. I have 4 or 5 of them and then made the mistake of not labeling them. The remotes still work but the buttons will be mixed up on how they control a different light. Total cost 10.00+8.45+8.45+4.25+4.25=35.40 could be even cheaper if you already have a light. Saving you $10.00 dollars.
