Each and every star is a unique masterpiece, meticulously crafted using all-natural materials. When you unwrap it, be sure to handle it with care, meticulously following the included instructions. Check out this video to see the step-by-step guide on how to unpack and hang your star decoration.
Easy Steps to Assemble Your Stunning Star Lantern
- Your star will arrive flat packed. To open your star shaped lantern, hold the star flat, place one hand inside one of the outermost points and gently ease the point of the star outwards.
- With the remaining points of the star repeat this action. Ensure that each point is opened out before continuing on to the next.
- Using the two pieces of cord provided, gently bring the two outermost points together, place over light fitting and tie cords firmly, avoiding direct contact with the light bulb.
Every step of the crafting process is still done by hand, giving each star its own unique character. Employing traditional manual screen printing techniques adds a touch of authenticity to our Paper Starlights. This may lead to minor variations in the print, but these slight deviations are a testament to the genuine craftsmanship behind each piece.
Our stars are crafted to be suspended over a light source of your choosing. You have the option of using either battery-operated or mains-powered lights, which can be purchased separately.
- You can use the star as you would a lampshade, placing it over electric lightbulbs and LEDs on a standard pendant light fixture (as demonstrated in the video).
- Alternatively, you can employ an electric plug set with flex, light fixture, and plug for hanging the star in a window.
- battery operated fairy lights can also be inserted for a whimsical effect. Additionally, various types of battery-operated LED lights, such as a portable ‘bulb-on-a-rope’ for camping, can be utilized.
- Our stars also make stunning decorative pieces even when not illuminated, adding a captivating 3D element to your space.
Ensure that your light bulb's wattage does not exceed 40 watts – we recommend using LED lamps ranging from 1.5 to 5.5 watts. Due to the paper construction of the stars, they should not be used with candles and should be kept away from open flames.
Rest assured, all Paper Starlights' lanterns undergo rigorous British Standard testing and adhere to BS EN 60598-1:2015 regulations.
