How do I use my star?
Use as a lampshade over any pendant light fitting or as a lantern with a set of battery operated LED fairy lights inside.
Our stars also look fantastic unlit as 3D decorations.
Our stars are perfect for use indoors, or in dry outdoor environments.
What lamp should I use inside?
They have been tested to use with a maximum wattage bulb of 40 watts.
However - LED lamps between 2 and 5 watts are the best – the higher the wattage and lumens ( e.g. 5 watts ), the brighter it will be. For a more ambient glow, use a set of LED fairy lights or a lower wattage lamp ( e.g. 2 watts ).
The effects of the star will be different depending on which colour star and which type of light you use inside.
Our stars conform to the British Standard for luminaires BS EN 60598
How do they work?
They come flat. You simply open them up one point at a time and tie the two cords together to form a perfect star.
Instructions are provided with each lantern and you can watch a video which shows you how to open and hang it.

Really fantastic lampshade for my sons’ bedroom, it does make the light quite dim in the room, but as they’re very young, that’s a bonus at bedtime.
I am very happy with my stars they are completely in accordance with the description and the packaging is neat thank you
Gorgeous! Just right for over Christmas. Will be a treasured decoration for years to come. Seller got back to me quickly with a query about how to put the fairy lights in.
Lovely cheerful star, sent quickly, thank you for the little gift.
