re-post from last year: PB ran out of them super early last year, but it looks like they are back!
I saw these paper lantern stars in PB Teen and fell in love. They were $12 with free shipping, so I thought that I might get some for Christmas since we don’t have a room with an electric guitar, a furry beanbag, or a karaoke machine at the moment. Usually I’m trying to copy Pottery Barn, but I couldn’t pass these up for this price.
You just bring it out like an accordian and tie together.
The cardboard is really heavy, but I didn’t want them to look like paper, so they got a coat of heirloom white (get it at Home Depot for $3-$4) out in the FAH-REEZING garage:
Then I brought out the distress ink that Shelley loves:
Pottery Barn sells the cord kit for $12, but we just used these replacement lights you can buy for Christmas villages at a craft store for around $3, hung a small nail above the window, and tucked the cords behind the curtains. (I looked on Amazon for an example: Single Light Replacement Cord, but you should be able to find them at Michaels, Hob Lob, JoAnn, etc)I've also been informed that Ikea has some stars like these, but let's not talk about Ikea and remind me that I don't have one anywhere near...
