Hot Wedding Trends for 2013:Paper Lanterns

WRITTEN BY GUEST BLOGGER GAIL OLIVER AUTHOR OF 663 MUST-HAVE WEDDING IDEAS

Paper Lanterns are so beautiful and yet surprisingly very inexpensive. That is why they have become a hot wedding décor item. They can make a reception tent, barn or any ceiling instantly eye-catching, especially when hung in clusters in a mix of different sizes, shapes, and colors more a more awe-inspiring look.

Paper Lanterns DIY Ideas:

  • Hang ornate ribbons or plastic crystals of different lengths from the lower metal ring
  • Glue on artificial flowers or paper butterflies
  • Embellish with pearl or jewels brads
  • Use shaped paper punches to create a unique design
  • Cluster the lanterns with hanging paper flowers and pom poms
