How To Use

To open, hold star flat, place one hand inside one of the outer points and gently ease point outwards.

Carefully repeat the first step with remaining points. Ensure each point is fully open before moving on to the next.

Using the two cords provided, gently bring the two outer points together. If illuminating, place over light source and tie cords firmly to secure in place. Do not pull the cords to open your star.

For use indoors and in sheltered outdoor environments

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.

To preserve materials, we encourage using our stars over a light source you may already have – but we do supply cable kits and fairy lights just in case you need them!

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.

Pros and Cons

Pros: Looks beautiful when lit up. Cons: I struggled to fit the shade over my light fixture, as it kept pulling apart. I managed to tie it closed but there is a noticeable gap. For the cost, it would have been nice to have magnets. I'm also worried that the area of the paper where the strings are attached to will eventually tear due to pulling.

Very Nice quality :) Quick delivery 🚚 Couldn’t ask for more really…
