Indoor, Outdoor Autumn Lantern

The BFF Open House Link Party is still going on if you’d like to link up here.
I know other people do this ( humor me and tell me you do!) ….pick up something because you see a project in it even if it’s not immediate? Like when I picked up an outdoor lantern at Lowes this Summer and only just decided what to do with it?
Autumn Lantern
When Pick Your Plum had a great deal on metallic vinyl, I couldn’t help myself. Copper, gold, chocolate brown…Yes please! I cut out some designs on my Expression using the Accent Essentials cart and put on each side.

Cut out a flourishy thing and several leaves in different sizes. Of course I couldn’t leave the candle that would go inside just plain. Remember that wood grain contact paper from Dollar Tree I used on my Give Thanks charger?  Cut some of that and wrapped around a plain candle, then added some KandCo scrapbook borders of maple leaves from the Tim Coffey “Fall” package to the top and bottom.
Autumn Candle
Finished that off with some wired bark ( an endless roll of which I picked up in the floral section of Michaels last year) . Not even sure if I’ll burn the candle ( unless we lose power on Thanksgiving which has been known to happen here in the PNW) .

For now, it’ll just be part of my Autumn d├ęcor. But I also wonder if Lowes still has these because I see a Christmas idea in my head!
