Paper lanterns are a great choice for event lighting as they are lightweight (which means they can be hung in tents, or from any overhead structure) and soft, gentle light fixtures that create an enchanting setting. They can also be used at home. Here are a few quick and simple ideas on how to create your own paper lantern chandelier:
Experiment with different colors and different sizes of lanterns – try two colors like white and pink or white and blue.
Want to create a unique look? Then get some fabric dye, a bucket, and dip dye those paper lanterns. Here is a tutorial on how to do them with lamps shades, which can be adapted to paper lanterns.
Try arranging the lanterns at various heights to give a more dynamic look.
You can either put a light in each lantern, or an easier way is to have one bright light hang down in the middle of the paper lantern chandelier, which will create a nice soft glow in all of the lanterns.
