Halloween Lantern

You might remember from an earlier post I had this decorated bow I created attached to a pillar candle in a glass candle holder. Here is the picture as it looked then as part of my whimsy Halloween theme.

Yesterday at The Christmas Tree Shops I found this black metal lantern and when I saw it, it immediately reminded me of the beautiful lantern swags that the very talented Kristen makes over at Kristen's Creations. The lantern was only $9.99 and it included an attached battery operated candle. It stands 13 inches tall. Couldn't pass that deal up. In fact I need to pick up one more. The wheels in my head are already turning for Christmas decor and I am going to need another lantern for sure. I attached the bow in the same fashion Kristen taught me and I love how it looks.

Here it is lit up at night. What a warm glow. I don't have too many battery operated candles, but I must say I really like them a lot.

I hope you enjoyed my short post and I urge you to try this yourself. They are so pretty. I hope to make some more now that I got the hang of it. Thanks so much for joining me today and thanks to Kristen for always inspiring me with something beautiful.

Love, Patty
