Shaped bokeh (day 13)

I found this guide for changing the shape of the bokeh of a lens. I was really fun to make and I already had the equipment for making this lying around because I was wrapping christmas gifts.
Because of the holidays, I went with a star-shaped bokeh. This is how it looked when finished (not very pretty to work around with but it works).

It works best if there is a number of small light sources in your picture. I used the lights on my christmas tree and made sure that they where out of focus.

Happy holidays!
