Whether in a craft room, a living room or a child’s bedroom, these pretty decorative lanterns look lovely strung up in a line or clustered together at different heights. You can change the print to suit your decor or keep things simple with plain fabrics too.
If you use a stiff enough fabric you can also place them on a tabletop over a battery-powered tea light for a lovely evening glow as the days start to get shorter. (Please do not use regular candles with these will pose a fire hazard.) Hanging up, you could consider stringing through a set of battery powered fairy lights.
Even unlit, I think they look rather lovely hanging from the ceiling and provide a little vertical interest and colour to a plain or papered wall!
