Star Lamps in the Bohemian Home: How to Assemble a Paper Star Lantern

Star Lamps in the Bohemian Home: How to Assemble a Paper Star Lantern

1. Open the star lantern by gently inserting your hand into each wing, one after the other.

2. Lift up the separated wings so that the star opens out without forcing it.

3. Tie the starlamp around a bulb using the thread to form a bow. You can use any lightbulb that doesn’t exceed 40W. We recommend a CFL (those swirly, curly ones) or an LED, because they put off minimal heat. LEDs are a bit more expensive but don’t heat up at all. Many of us Mexicali folk who have paper lanterns at home use CFLs with no issues, so it is really just a matter of preference.

Here’s a video, so you can see the process in action:
