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. 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!
