I’m trying to figure out the most economical way to do this, myself. There is a tutorial on making LED throwies that would stick to the metal frame of your lanterns here:

Completed LED Throwies with On/Off Tabs

You can also get fake tealight candles with LED lights in them for less than what paper lantern store is charging at craft stores and stick them inside the lanterns. I think I will go that route but am trying to figure out the best way to stick them in there.

I thought about this also.. You may want to get the lights and put each one into a clear baggiy.. or a stocking  or white mesh or tulle and tye it to the inside of the wire inside the lantern.  I hope that helps… 


I’m looking to buy used paper lanters for my wedding as well.. Are you looking to sell yours?  I’m in FL.

Does anyone know if those glow sticks work well inside the paper lanterns? Maybe if I tied two together? They’re available at Dollar Tree for .99 cents… Thanks !
