We have a Swede on the team who was adamant that we design and make a traditional Swedish paper star this year as part of our Holiday decoration range. And who are we to deny?! Paper star lanterns are such a beautiful decoration that I would quite happily hang in my house all year round! Our version is available as an SVG so you can cut it on your cutting machine if you have one. We are also offering this DIY paper star template as a PDF for those who like to cut by hand. Simply download the PDF, and print 8 copies out onto your chosen card stock. You can cut the holes by hand or a use hole punch. Score down the lines, fold and glue each point together. Join points 1 and 8 together with a length of string tied in a bow so that you can pop the pendant light inside or change bulbs as necessary. We purchased this pendant at Ikea but you will find that most electrical stores stock them in various lengths. If you would like a tutorial for these paper star lanterns you can pop back to this post which is a similar design (todays version has been adapted to hang more easily!). Make a few to hang from your ceiling or just one as a feature in the center of your window. Wherever you choose to hang your DIY paper star, we would love to see pics. Share with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #DIYDreamingWithLia and we will share our favorites. Thanks! ~ Lia
