Using Twinkle Lights for Fall Decor

Yesterday, the thermometer in the car said 100 degrees.....but the calendar says it is Autumn!  
Go figure!

I have been gradually switching the decor around Sweetwater to reflect the season....NOT...the temperature!
The family room was first....and honestly it took about 30 minutes to go from Summer to Fall!

The chair covers on the rattan chairs are now back to a muted color scheme. (I do love slipcovers for a quick change!)

  • These two purple pillows make sense when you look at the chair fabric.
  • A wine crate filled with interesting orbs and cotton bolls is fall like without going all "pumpkin" flavored! I often find these decorative balls at Good Will for a fraction of the cost they are at a decor store.  The same goes for the wine crate...keep an eye out for interesting containers.
  • The mantel got the "pumpkin" treatment complete with mood lighting!  I used my copper collection and a great pumpkin swag that has been around forever. 

I am totally obsessed with twinkle lights!
I love the battery powered strings that are on tiny copper wire.  The wire bends around to twist through the stuff and almost disappears.
A search on Amazon finds a really wide variety of these fun strings for a very low cost.  I have also seen them at Tuesday Morning and Dollar General.  You really want to have these in your decorating stash!!!

 I used a string to light up the Spooky Fairy Garden last season.....I will definitely do that again when October rolls around.

Look at some of the fun ways that other people have used twinkle lights:

HMMMM....I could probably weave a string into my wine crate!

Hope this inspires you to do a bit of fall decorating and add some twinkle lighting to your projects...

 I love the quote from the movie "You've Got Mail" when Kathleen announces that all will be fine, but "in the meantime, I'm putting up more twinkle lights."


Have A Wonderful Day!
