I’ve had this lantern in my room and wanted to do something with it as part of my Fall decorating this year. I decided that I was going to incorporate a lot of simple outside elements in it so it can be for the entire Fall season and I won’t have to change it after Halloween.
This project was super inexpensive. With only having to purchase the ribbon and the cinnamon sticks, it cost me under $2! I gathered the pinecones with my daughter a few weeks ago. Curious on how I cleaned them? My recent post will show you how to Clean and Dry Pinecones for this and any other craft you want to do. We also collected leaves and I preserved them for decorating. I will have a tutorial on how to do this in an upcoming post so stay tuned! The pumpkin is fake and was borrowed from a different arrangement in my living room. Anyway, here’s my Fall lantern project.
Here is a little look into other decor around my home. I normally try not to decorate too much for Fall. I like to keep things simple. Christmas, however, is a whole other story. It ends up looking like Santa threw up….in a good way, I hope. 🙂 I guess you’ll just have to wait and see on that, though!
