1. How to light paper lanterns ?

Ans: Paper lanterns are a great way to add charm and liven up indoor and outdoor parties and spaces. When lit and grouped together, these paper lantern decorations give off a beautiful soft glow and become a festive light source in your home, patio, backyard, and various outdoor events. But have you ever wondered how to light up these paper lamps?

There are several options available to illuminate Chinese paper lanterns using luminaires and the most popular way is to hang them from plug in fairy lights or commercial outdoor string lights for more permanent setups. Another way is to add individual pendant lamp cords if you want to illuminate individual lanterns or if you plan to hang them in groups at different heights. But to do both, you must have access to a nearby electrical outlet.

To add a luminous glow across a table, garden, or pool without the need for extensive and costly wiring and light fixtures, you can opt for battery operated fairy lights instead as they give more freedom and flexibility in decorating. Whichever option you want to use to create whimsical lighting, outdoor paper lanterns equipped with LED bulbs are a surprisingly versatile light source at a less cost.

2. How to hang paper lanterns from ceiling ?

Ans: If you've been toying with the idea of hanging colorful paper lamp shades for an upcoming indoor event but don't know how to do it without drilling holes or driving nails into the ceiling, don’t worry because we have an alternative that will perfectly handle the task.

To hang your round paper lanterns from the ceiling, you must first determine adequate headroom, especially for spaces with low ceilings so that people don't bump their heads on the hanging decor. Attach a fishing line or string to the top of the lantern and tie the other end to an adhesive hook. Hang your lantern from the ceiling by sticking the adhesive hook in the placement you want. Aside from adhesive hooks, you can also use a piece of strong clear tape to neatly attach the hanging paper lamps to the ceiling.

The position and the way you choose to hang your lanterns can help draw attention to certain areas of your event or home. Use lanterns of varying sizes to create depth or make a convergence point by arranging your lanterns in clusters.

  • Create a cascading look by filling in the gaps and hanging your bulk paper lanterns at varying heights to create the look and volume that you want.
