When Halloween’s long gone and the month is flying by, we move onto Fall Decor fit for a Thanksgiving feast. Leave those uncarved pumpkins out ’til December, add autumn leaves in warm shades of amber, orange & red, plus a touch of glitter – gotta have that glitz. And the final touch for fall decor to make guests feel right at home? Inviting lights are key. Make sure it’s LED!
Cozy and safe, now that’s Fall Decor perfection. Candles have been a holiday staple since, like, the beginning of time. But the times are a’changin’ and safety must come first. Pretty sure your Thanksgiving party will pass out in the living room after copious amounts of tryptophan a.k.a. turkey magic…and don’t even get me started on them curious kiddos (and pets!) who go exploring when the adults aren’t looking. So won’t it be a relief to trust your fall decor is chillin’ safely as you “party” Thanksgiving away? When it comes to hot flames versus cool LED lighting, LED always wins.
Well lookie there, I improved upon something that was already pretty to begin with! FBL’s Warm White LED String Lights are so simple to add, this seriously took me 1 minute. Its safe copper wire string bends into place and keeps its shape, so it’s great for wreath crafts, Christmas garland, all that holiday jazz. Now that you’re familiar with 2 of our seasonal favorites, let’s check out more fun ideas to put ’em to use. Props to the craft blogs:
Revel Blog turned colorful gourds into tea light candle holders. Brilliant!
Spark & Chemistry taught us that Mason Jars + Mod Podged leaves = DIY candle holders. Rustic chic!
Style Me Pretty beautifully captured tea lights hung from rustic branches. How romantic!
Refinery29 put LED Wire String Lights inside hangable terrariums. Love that angular shape! Anything prism shaped is going to accentuate your lights’ shine like WHOA.
Cheryl Style’s crafty cool ice bucket has nada to do with candles, nor lights, but I sure am in love with the idea. Note to self: recreate with your own LED Ice Cubes, missy, DO IT.
French Basketeer made their very own Stairway to Heaven. Helloooo lovely CHRISTMAS decor! It’ll be here in the blink of an eye, don’t fight the feeling… Replace fire with LEDs, naturally.
