Super bright, cheery strand of handmade paper pyramid lanterns, made with repurposed printmaking papers and card stock.

Inspired by all of the excellent urban gardens we saw exploding out onto the sidewalks while living in Denver, which are filled with crazy plants our midwest eyes had never seen before.


MAY: Lanterns are dip-dyed, giving them a cool, layered effect when lit. This technique is used on all of the neon yellow lanterns, creating an ombre finish. The dip-dye look has a higher contrast on the navy blue and magenta lanterns, which vary in color saturation. Many of the paler navy blue/magenta lanterns have painterly details like water spots and brushstrokes. Bright, solid magenta lanterns appear throughout.

Looking for a different color palette? We have lots of different light strands in a million lovely hues, check out the whole collection here:

Our garlands come in three sizes -
Long: 22 ft / 100 lanterns. Connectible plugs at each end.
Medium: 11 ft / 50 lanterns. Connectible plugs at each end.
Short: 8 ft / 20 lanterns. Connectible plugs at one end.
(Strand pictured is a medium.)

Plug is for standard US outlets (AC, 120 volts/60 Hz). Lights are warm white incandescent. Strand uses approximately 20 watts.

Since each strand is made to order, your garland will not look identical to the one pictured, but will be very similar. A one-of-a-kind piece of glowing art, the only one to exist on the planet! Pretty cool, right?

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: If you're outside of the Americas, you will likely need a converter to plug these in. If your country uses a higher electrical current than in use here, plugging in our lights without a converter will blow out the lights.

Please allow 2 weeks to make and ship. See our shop policies page for details on shipping.
