Supplies: White feather trim (we used 8 trims to complete our light), hot glue gun, rice paper lantern (make sure to get one that is supposed to be used with a light bulb, as not all paper lanterns are approved for that type of use), pendant light kit (if you don't already have one installed).
1. Starting at the bottom of your paper lantern, position your feather trim so that the feathers go an inch or so past the opening. You'll notice that the feathers tend to all curves up or down, so you'll want to turn them so they will curve upwards when the light is right side up (this give the light it's fluffy look). Use the hot glue gun to glue the ribbon trim of the feathers onto the paper lantern and go all the way around the lantern to complete the circle of feathers.
2. Start the feather trim for your next row about 2 inches from the top of the first row and make another circle of feather. Continue this process until you have covered the bottom half of the lantern.
3. When covering the top half of the lantern, make your rows of feathers a little closer (about 1.5 inches from each other). With the way the feathers lay, you'll notice gaps in the top half more than in the bottom half, so you'll use more rows on the top.
4. When you get to the top, line up the ribbon edge of your trim with the top of the lantern when attaching the feathers to complete the pendant. All you have to do now is hang your pendant!
Note: If you don't already have a pendant light kit installed from a previous light, you'll have to have a professional electrician install the kit for you.
