Each of these stunning star lanterns is handcrafted in India from 100% recycled materials. Our paper star lanterns come in a variety of dazzling colors to suit any ambient lighting need. Although five-pointed stars have held many meanings throughout history, Asian folklore suggests that each point symbolizes the five elements of Wu Xing: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. These magnificent lanterns were also used during the Indian Diwali festival, or the Festival of Lights, to celebrate the triumph of good over evil.
Today, these lanterns are often used in tandem with Christmas lighting and other decorations. Paper star lanterns look especially magical in nurseries or any room that could benefit from a little ambiance. Each of our hanging star lanterns includes a 12-foot UL-approved lighting kit to make installation fast and easy.
