Stunning, weightless, floating, clustered, colorful, splashy, illuminated— all of these luscious words describe the highly under-rated paper lantern.
In bunches, in lines, filled with lightbulbs or dangling from velvety ribbons, paper lanterns can add musicality, vivaciousness, charm and even focus to indoor and outdoor spaces. Get ready to be inspired to order packets of lanterns (they are so inexpensive!) and create your own fantasy-scapes!
While I do not advocate hanging anything over your head while you sleep, these lanterns that weigh just a feather are a dreamy exception to the feng shui rule!
Studio DIY has a how-to that can fancy-up your plain lanterns with very little crafting skill involved!
As handfulls of patterns, textures and colors come together in a ceiling cluster, you experience the synergy of layered richness without complication or weight. These lanterns are like fun on the ceiling!
For my next birthday I crave these paper balls in wild colors. I am hunting for some for my patio, in a waterproof version, in all sorts of blooming garden tones.
The retro-boho stylists appreciate the lanterns, especially ones that light up! You can bunch them in a dark corner, sprinkle them down a long hallway… the possibilities are rich for exploration and play!
And, if you are looking to grab a whole bunch to experiment- I have found so many great ones on Etsy- too many to select just one or two to highlight!- that I encourage you to surf a bit and find your own favorites!
