The best prices for paper lanterns is the paperlanternstore.com. They sell 8″ round lanterns in a variety of colors fo about $1.00. The string lighting is what’s more expensive though. There was an amazing DIY post here from a bee that figured out a cheap alternative to buying lighting for paper lanterns. Maybe one of the bees can help find the link to that.

I got a great deal used from Classifieds here.  It turned out the person who sold them to me was also an IRL friend from way back!  Weird how things work sometimes.

Paperlanternstore.com definitely turned out to be the best rates for us for paper lanters. Also, if you enter the coupon code “fship” at checkout, you can get free shipping! (Only applies to orders over $100.)

I think @bunny22 is referring to Mrs. Tiramisu’s amazing LED throwie tutorials…we are doing a variation of her system for lighting our lanterns. Here are some links to her related posts:

Note – doing it this way is not for the faint of heart – my in-laws are being super awesome about this and pretty much taking care of it for me. Its WAY cheaper than any other route, but pretty time consuming.
