      Hi Ladies,

      I just went to IKEA yesterday and they had white paper laterns on sale for $1.99 each.  I'm not sure if this is on the cheaper side or not but thought I would share it.

              So im assuming you guys just used fishing line to  attach the led/battery inside the lantern?

                    I did a test run with my lanterns and just taped the throwie to the frame.  It held for 2 weeks!  Only thing is that the light doesn't look very centered.

                      Pardon my ignorance but when do you assemble them? Onsite? It looks like once you tape the light to the battery, the light is ON? How long does it last? I have to hand everything over to the resort a couple days before our wedding...thanks!
