Decorating with lanterns

Hello everyone.  With the change of the seasons comes
the fluffing of our nests.
Out come pillows to cozy up the couch...

 a soft throw to wrap around yourself on a cool evening...

 and I am noticing lanterns used inside and outside for decorating and not just lighting.

 Lanterns, mixed with fall leaves, pumpkins, crows....makes for a beautiful display.

This little DIY lantern is made from a small glass jar or vase, wrapped in burlap.  Small candle placed inside and you have a wonderful outdoor candle to place anywhere.

I'm  using lanterns in my decor this fall...Here and there....

.... rustic and wonderful paired with pumpkins and fall squash.
