Stacked and linked together, colorful, inexpensive paper lanterns brighten any interior space, as in this living room. Start by slightly bending the bottom wire inside one lantern and attaching it to the top hook of another. Then hang the series from the ceiling with a screw eye. For a soft glow, thread string lights through the center of the lanterns.
