Hanging your lanterns inside your home

You are many eager to know how to create a beautiful paper lanterns cluster to decorate a bedroom, a living room or any space of your home.
It is actually really easy! You just need to choose a range of colors you like, a small hook and some string.

Most of the time, we use a picture hook that nails into the wall. You can then hang the lanterns at different heights using fishing line or ribbons. For a bigger bunch of lanterns, we recommend you use two hooks placed a few inches apart.
You can also use self-adhesive hooks from which you can easily hang 5 to 6 small to medium sized lanterns. The advantage to adhesive hooks is that they can be removed without leaving marks.
If you want to hang lanterns from the ceiling, the best option is a hook screwed into the ceiling, but you can also use a self-adhesive ceiling hook (for weights less than 1 pound) specially made to easily hang decorations.
All self-adhesive hooks can be found in your local hardware store or online.

You can also use our Under The Paper Lantern hanging kit to hang a set of paper lanterns on the wall

Hanging your paper lanterns in a party venue

To temporarily hang lanterns (in a party venue or other rental), we recommend you use fishing line or ribbon to hang your lanterns to the ceiling’s structure. You can also create a “net” to hang your lanterns from on your venue’s ceiling by tying several lengths of string to the room structure (a windows, details of the ceiling, tent’s poles etc). According to the type of venue and what you would like to have, you can scatter your paper decorations all over the ceiling or organize them in several clusters at various points of the ceiling (ie. over the bride and groom table or a dessert buffet).

If you want to hang lanterns all over your venue ceiling, we recommend 1 to 2 lanterns or other decorations for every 3m2 (32 square feet of space). You can then adjust to what you feel is right for your event and your budget. You can also draw your venue space with its main features (tables, dancefloor etc) and draw a little circle wheverever you want a lantern. This will give you an idea of how many lanterns you would like to have.

You can also string a very fine twine along the center fold of your wedding tent, mix and match color forms that suit your wedding best. Each piece has a small hook for paper lanterns or a small string attaching the honeycomb ball and paper fan. That way it’s super easy to hang them from the central twine.
