How can I make a common Christmas lights strand twinkle on its own?

I have a strand of Christmas lights and they don’t blink, but I want them to blink and I am desperate about that! If I can’t find a way to get my Christmas lights blink I think i will need to be hospitalized.

How can I fix this damn strand?

    I am pretty sure there are specialized christmas lights that are made to do that sort of thing, but I know there is a way to do this with ordinary lights. The problem is that this alternative plan may end up costing more than just buying all new lights.

    I believe all you need is a blinker bulb. Not sure what kind of lights you have but I know this works on mini’s and C-7 light strands. Just make sure you unscrew the first or second bulb in the strand (or pop out if it’s a mini), then replace it with your new blinker bulb.
    There are also “blinker boxes” you can purchase (I bought one at a well know bargain store). These will make any lights that are plugged into the box, blink.
    Good luck!

    The blinker bulb will make them flash not twinkle. You need to buy lights that say “chaser” or “twinkle” to have movement in the strand.
