I am a bit of a holiday decor hoarder. If you’ve been around for any length of time, you know that we have a basement filled with bins of holiday decorations. But while I do have lots of fall decor, I also love modifying some core decor items throughout the year. That’s the case these lanterns. Some of you spotted my little lantern decor on the fall porch.
Those two red lanterns from IKEA stay outside all year. And each season, I wipe them down and add a new filler. For fall, it’s mini pumpkins and gourds. (And yes, despite the appearance of dust and grime, I did wipe these down and clean the glass before filling them with pumpkins.)
I think this is so much more fun than a simple candle and adds a bit of seasonal decor to the space. It also reminds me of how I used to fill our window boxes with pumpkins in the fall.
Anyhoo – this was just a little tip for those of you who still want to add a little festivity to your home for fall. You don’t have to get new stuff. Just fallify your existing decor.
Happy Monday, friends!
