Very Festive Outdoor Lanterns
These really are nylon and come in a variety of sizes to suit any location. They are easy to assemble and flatten easily to store. They are a fun splash of color for Chinese New Years!
ConsChinese characters are at top and bottom with no embellishments in the middle of the lantern where they would be more visible. Can be a bit tricky to hang straight. They need to hang from something that extends horizontally away from a wall.

18" Red Nylon Lantern Review - AMAZING!!
I ordered 10 lanterns and could not be happier with the products and how they arrived. Packaged with protection, all 10 lanterns showed up in perfect condition and were easily assembled that very day. The individual lanterns have held up wonderfully in our coastal sunny/ misty/ salty climate with no indication of any damage whatsoever. I only wish that you could hear the compliments from those who drive by and see these lanterns hanging ! The colors and shapes have held up to perfection! Would I recommend this to others? ..already have :-)

Good, then oops...
Carefully unfolded the coiled ribbed frame and inserted the strut. It looks great and I am pleased. Here it is,.. 'but', after a few days the nylon is separating & fraying between 2 of the ribs. Oh well, win some, lose some. I only ordered 1 lamp so the shipping for replacement isn't worth the cost - nearly the same price of the product. =:^(

Customers Love Lanterns
Every year customers come to expect our lantern inventory and we always sell out! The product is very reasonably priced so that we can pass on the savings to our customers!

In previous years I had found red paper (well, nylon) lanterns in local stores, they looked good. But this year I found this website, and ordered the 18" lanterns for more zing on the front porch. THEY LOOK FABULOUS! And, when the can lighting above them is on at night, they seem to glow.
ProsGreat price, GREAT look!

Awesome Christmas ornaments!
I've used these nylon lanterns for the past 2 years as outdoor Christmas ornaments on the balcony of my Gulf coast condo. They're bright and weather resistant, and they collapse for easy storage. I bought this latest batch of 18" to replace the smaller ones I'd previously purchased.
Pros-Very bright and colorful. -Weather resistant -Easy to use -Collapses for storage

nice quality
These lanterns are great. I bought them for a Chinese wedding, wanting the nylon over paper due to likely dampness and they were perfect. The glowed beautifully with the LED lights and looked like glorious apples on a tree.
Proswon't get soggy in dampness/weather
Consthe gold detail is basically a sticker and might peel off...

Lights up the entire street
We hung nylon lanterns in different colors and sizes from our giant Magnolia tree, along with LED string lights, just as we entered a week of rather intense east winds. Both lights and lanterns held up beautifully to the test. It looks fantastic, and neighbors and passersby compliment us on it every day. It lights up our entire block and looks wonderfully festive!

Good lanterns
I love having lanterns on our lanai! These vinyl ones hold up pretty well in the elements. I do have to change them out a few times a year b/c they start shredding. But I love having a new set b/c the colors are so vibrate. I will continue ordering them from here.

Best Outdoor Lanterns
We hosted a ladybug themed outdoor pool party and used the red nylon lanterns. Placed black round stickers on them and hung them in groups of 3 and tied them to the patio umbrella ribs with black curling ribbon. I don't buy paper lanterns anymore because Paper Lantern Store has the best price on nylon ones. They are durable, you don't need to worry if they get wet and they can be reused. Love the bright red color on these. Will order more in different colors.

good product
I purchased this lantern shade in 4 colors to replace the shades on some older solar lanterns that were in rags. This is a good product -- well made and looks like it will last. I would love to see someone (please take note) offer replacement solar kits for this large variety of lantern shades

Red Nylon lanterns
Actual lanterns are lovely; metal inserts and their welds are shoddy and break easily.
ProsPrice, look.
ConsConstruction of internal metal "frame" is very poor. I have had to add wire & tape to hold them together.

These nylon lanterns are great quality, nylon has many advantages. Last much longer than paper, rain won't damage them, light shimmers through beautifully. If you would like a lantern that will last this is the best.
