DIY: Holiday Lantern

This weekend I moved into my new house, and it hasn’t stopped snowing since I arrived. While I have decided not to go all out for Christmas this year I did decorate a lantern with my mum and grandma at Thanksgiving. The lantern is now making my house feel a bit more like Christmas inside. Ornaments, greenery and berries are what add a festive touch to this Ikea lantern.

  1. YAY for moving into the new place! I love the lantern, I have the exact same one I picked up at Ikea but it's black. I just threw some ornaments in mine but the greenery and candle really add to it. Great job!

  2. I have the same lantern from Ikea but in silver. What a great idea :) And I wish I had some snow here. It doesn't feel like winter at all!

  3. I love lanterns - I can't wait to see your new house!

  4. I love those Ikea lanterns! What a cute idea!

  5. Cute idea!

  6. This lantern is so pretty! I have two old lanterns at home that I haven't had a clue what to do with - they kind of just sit out looking sad! This is a great way to spruce them up!

    PS - you probably know this but just in case, I saw that you were mentioned on Stripes and Sequins over the weekend! Congrats!

  7. Gorgeous! I think I'm using some lanterns for my wedding in May. ;)
