Hello again! Happy Fall officially! I can hardly believe it is that time already. Of course, if you spend time on the blogosphere, it has seemed like fall for a month now! I will be joining the ranks with my own Fall Home Tour on Monday, so be sure to come back for a visit!
Today I have a little and fairly simple project that I put together. I bought these hanging flower baskets at a yard sale several years ago. I have used them for various things, buy they have been sitting for awhile now. I also have had the green lights, which are firefly lights for several years. They slowly fade in and out like flreflies. We don’t have real fireflies here, so I had to go with faux ones! Anyways, I never have found a good place to use them. So I decided to combine them with some Christmas lights I found at Goodwill.
The first thing I did was wire the two baskets together on one side to make sort of a hinge. This made it a little easier to put the whole thing together without it coming apart each time I moved it around.
Next I added in the firefly lights. I wired them in various spots so they would hang all around inside the baskets. This was followed by the Christmas lights. I added a piece of wire every couple of lights or so. I first went around the inside of one basket and then around the other.
When I finished wiring all the lights in, I wired the two baskets completely together. Now all there was to do, was find a place to hang it and plug it in! I decided to add it to my fall front porch, to make a nice welcoming light.
I love how this looks in the twilight!
Pretty simple and will look great on the back patio next summer too! Be sure to come back and visit on Monday for my Fall Home Tour!
