In keeping with the leaf theme I decided to make a quick and simple leaf garland. Using leaves purchased from the dollar store. I decided to add some twinkle lights. Who says twinkle lights are just for Christmas? Not this girl. No way, no how. Shine bright like a diamond all year long.
I will note that I used LED lights. So they will not get hot. This is important with what I am going to be doing with them.
The beauty of this leaf garland is that the kissed by fall fairy leaves are pretty all on their own. In the daytime they look like a standard, pretty leaf garland. Until the sun goes down and the craziness that is twinkle lights illuminating a fireplace comes on. This is fall decor insanity! I am breaking all of the rules and most likely getting on Santa’s naughty list right now, I believe he has reserved the twinkle lights for his holiday. Until today, boom!
Lastly, and most importantly…. these leaves sparkle and shine! They were truly kissed by the fall fairies. What is a fun way you have decorated for fall? Anything adorable like Nora’s proclamation of the fall fairies? Kids are the best, mine adore these twinkling lights and want to see them sparkle with no other lights on in the house.
We set the mood here, lights low, twinkling, Dale and I cozy on the couch, with three kids and two dogs piled up on top of us telling jokes, and then one of the dog’s fart. At least that is who gets blamed, every time. Just the reality around here. Within that chaos we do enjoy these lights though, there is that at least.
