Pretty but has some drawbacks
I originally bought these to hang inside as a Christmas decoration, and they are indeed very pretty. They provide a warm, soft light, and the lanterns with the eyelets look especially nice. Unfortunately, they have ended up on the porch instead due to a strong chemical smell coming from the lanterns. My husband, who is usually not sensitive to such things, even noticed it and was concerned about it. So they are now relegated to our covered porch. Which brings me to the second issue - the clips that hold the lanterns on to the lights are extremely flimsy. This especially seems to be a problem for the perforated lanterns. Last night we had some moderate wind (10 mph max) and in the morning 4 out of the 5 perforated lanterns were scattered around the yard. To be fair, none of the solid lanterns had come off, so perhaps this is an issue specific to the perforated ones. I've secured them all with twist ties so hopefully this won't happen again, but I'm disappointed that they don't stay on better on their own.
