I’m not sure what you were planning, but could you light them up with colored christmas lights instead of white ones? I thionk you could use green or even mix in some red one for a cool effect. I found this picture that makes it look like you can get colored lights for the inside that would dramatically change the look.

Spray paint.  We bought white ones for my sisters shower and we spray painted them purple….they looked great!

Wow!  100 white paper lanterns?  My mom would have thrown a fit!

Definitely a good idea to paint them.  Have you thought of applying paint with a large sponge?  That way there will be some texture, but not as gunky as actual paint.  You could do it with very little paint probably.
