We LOVE this cupcake liner lamp from Design Sponge…
Instead of paying an arm and a leg for an awesome hanging paper lantern, you can create your own, making your own personal twists, for much cheaper. All you need is some cupcake liners, petit four liners, a paper lantern, a Hemma cord (you can purchase one from IKEA for less than $4), and a hot glue gun.
After finding your paper lantern, balance the lantern on a bowl (this will keep the liners from getting crushed as you work your way around the lantern), and begin attaching your cupcake liners along the lantern with the hot glue. When you’re halfway finished, turn the lantern upside down on the bowl and finish the rest.
Next, use the hot glue gun to attach the petit fours liners in the centers of each cupcake liner. After the lamp has dried, attach the cord and hang your light.
