Dressed Up Lantern

 You all might remember I posted some fall inspiration I found on Pinterest a while back. It included a lantern dressed with berries, fall leaves and ribbon. I just fell in love with it and could not wait until fall to dress mine up! Using some of my favorite silk flowers, berries, greenery and ribbon I added some color to the top of this lantern for an everyday/summer look.



Visit me tomorrow for my Share Your Creations Party! I hope you will join in the fun! I will be sharing some new Etsy store items I am working on now.
Have a great day!

Hi Kristen!
I love it and just pinned it. Thank you for showing us. I'm definitely trying it once fall rolls around.

I hope all has been well for you. It's been a busy summer!

Warmly, ~Melissa :)

Very pretty, Kristen! I think I'm most looking forward to Fall for the decorating part! Decorating my cloches, lantern and other containers with berries, flowers and pumpkins. You always do such a good job with your florals. Something that probably takes you minutes will take me at least an hour! : )

Kristen, you're amazing. I love this. I have a birdcage that's plain and just sitting here. I am inspired to do something like this with it. Thanks!
