It’s just another fallish day around here and I am lovin’ it!! The temps have started dropping and it’s perfect weather for sitting out on the porch or patio just winding down the day. This week I wanted to create a little bit of fall ambiance to our front porch. Today, I’m going to show you my fall chandelier.
If you have read more than one or two of my posts then you probably already know
that I’m a huge fan for anything that is simple and easy.
Simple and easy fits well in my busy life with work and a sixteen month old. ;)
So for this little project, I used a grapevine wreath ($3.99 at Hobby Lobby),
one strand of fall leaf garland left over from last year, some twine
which I also already had, a few pumpkin wreath picks,
mini pumpkins, and tealight candles.
Oh, and hot glue of course.
I decided to cut the leaves from the garland so I could place them right where
I needed them to be sure they wouldn’t interfere with my candles.
When I got all the leaves on there, here’s what I had.
I was in Kroger’s yesterday and spotted my little fall favs.
I decided to carve these little babies out and drop in a tealight candle.
I glued the pumpkins to the wreath and added a few wreath picks for fill in.
Aren’t those pumpkins the cutest??
I put three strands of twine around the wreath and created a knot at the end
to hang it from. We have a small bistro set on our front porch and this works
perfectly over that little table. Here it is all lit up at dusk for ya.
Doesn’t that just make you want to sip pumpkin spice lattes on the front
porch?? Well, maybe that’s not your thing, but it sure brings some warmth to our
porch. I’m ready to add a few more fall touches out there,
maybe a few mums, some pumpkins-
and enjoy a cool, crisp evening relaxing with the hubs. ;)
Let’s get outside!
