5 Pointed Paper Star Lantern
Intricately printed in colorful designs, these handmade paper star lanterns transform any indoor room into a magical place. Comes complete with a bulb protector and 12 foot long white electrical cord. Best to use a standard size 7-9 watt (40 watt equivalent) compact fluorescent bulb as they give off minimal heat, and pose little to no danger of the light becoming too hot. (I leave mine on 24/7 with a compact fluorescent bulb with no worries.) Light bulb not included. Handmade in India. Choose from 5 pointed stars or 7 pointed stars. 24” from point to point.
To assemble, first line up the center circle of the bulb protector with the bulb socket on the cord. Screw the bulb into both the hole of the protector and the socket. Use the tabs to wrap the bulb protector around the bulb to make a “cage.” Carefully unfold the paper star and insert the bulb into the open end of the star. Tie the strings of the paper star around the bulb and the cord. Hang where desired.
Tip: I hang mine between curtains in windows by wrapping the cord around the curtain rod and hiding the cord behind the curtains. You could also use a small screw hook to hang the star from the ceiling, and another screw hook where the ceiling and wall meet to run the cord along the ceiling and down the wall to the outlet without the cord draping into the center of a space.
