What would this circuit act like? Answered

I am building this cirucit
It flashes an led once every 2 seconds, if I am reading correctly.
I need to modify it so that it acts like in this vid below.
Any Ideas?

I am making many of them so that I can scatter them all around our house on halloween to make it have a sort of twinkle effect. (the leds are going to be connected at different times so they blink at different times)

The circuit is a simple led flasher....and you want a blinker? where it doesn't just turn on and off, but it flashes, then waits 5 seconds... a 555 timer could be configured to have a 5 second delay with a very short flash...
