Aren't they just gorgeous? Unfortunately, they're not as wallet-friendly as, say, those ubiquitous paper lanterns which sell for less than $20. That beauty on top was $350, and the cute spherical one at the bottom is about $150, if I remember right. I tried, in vain, to Google wood lanterns but found nothing remotely close to these. If anyone has any tips on cheaper alternatives, please drop me a line before I buckle down and buy one!
