Some Big Lanterns
I mentioned in this post I went to Lowe's on Friday and stocked up on some mums that were super cheap. Well along with that I found these awesome, big lanterns that were priced $35.99 marked down on clearance to $8.74!! I was so excited I snatched up the last two they had.
From this picture it's hard to tell how big they are, but let me show you another picture so you get a better idea. These are the lanterns next to my 2 year old. They practically come up to the top of his legs.
I measured them and they are almost 18 inches tall. So a good size lantern. And for less than $9.00 each, I thought it was a pretty sweet deal. I decided to put some fake green stuff in them and display them on my mantel for now. I think they would look fantastic outside too.
I just love them and look forward to changing out the decor for fall. I added my tile pictures to the mantel for now too. You can read more about that project here.
I think it would be fun to add some Christmas lights in them as well along with some pine cones and berries.
If you want to see how I made those pictures on either side of my mantel, check out this post and this post.
So did you score anything good over the holiday weekend?
