How to Hang Drop Socket Paper Lanterns

If you have a set of paper lanterns that are made for bulbs, then you will need to purchase light drop cords made to work with the lanterns. This is a fairly easy way to add color and charm to an outdoor party. Make sure that you have two sturdy posts of some kind -- such as trees -- on which to anchor your light drop cords.
