Do you think using mesh paper for the cranes would look good?

probably you'd probably see more of the actual light as apposed to a glow, post in the versions if you try it id love to see it

be carefull using regular christmas lights they get hot and may catch fire to the paper, i havent had it happen to mine with the LEDs but i dont leave them on for a long time.
