Decorate paper lantern lights

Paint paper lantern lights with the edding gloss paint marker

This decorative chain of lights will create a magical atmosphere during the Christmas season – you can use it to adorn windows, walls or door frames. And this glass lantern, with its stylish hand lettering, is also a great way to provide additional mood lighting.

To really bring these decorative celebration lights into the spotlight with a festive theme, we used edding gloss paint markers, which are ideal for adding shimmering, opaque designs in stunning metallic shades onto a variety of surfaces.
