Paper Lanterns give such a big statement.
I always thought that they were expensive- until I saw them at the Christmas Tree Shops for $1.50 each (we're talking about 30" wide lanterns) So I grabbed some!
They had all sorts of cute colors and patterns!
I didn't want to spend the money to buy an individual bulb system for each (they run about $9 each.) Instead, I stuffed them with white Christmas lights. All the bulbs weren't even working- but it turned out great.
Aren't they so pretty?
June especially loved them!
We let the light strands hang instead of using individual extension cords for each light. I really liked the way it turned out looking.
Not bad for under $5!!!
