Okay so these are the same lanterns I use all year around. I used a ribbon I ordered from Nell Hill that Mary Carol Garrity actually suggested for me. I used it inside and outside. Placed a faux candle that lights up and then I put some faux little sprigs inside around the candle. Then I used natural green wreaths below as a foundation for the lanterns.
Here is a full view. That piece of greens was there before I put the wreaths, have to fix that, they were covered in snow. I also added some faux greens on the side of the lantern outside beneath the ribbon. I love how they turned out.
I adore my Nell Hill Silver Balls. You can still get them by calling the store. These are the medium sized ones. Absolutely love them! You can see reflections in them, I thought would be cool to take a photo for a christmas card. Again they are placed upon a fresh wreath.
Now I have my white lanterns by my door. Have them all year around decorated differently according to the seasons. Just placed a some garland and more felt gigantic ribbons from my trip to Nell Hill last year.
Used fresh garland around my porch. But it's going to be in the high 60's this weekend. I'm a little afraid they will turn yellow.
And then finally my beautiful faux wreath that looks so real. I love love love this wreath. I placed a simple bow from the felt ribbon that matches the white lanterns and then some red berries.
Hope these ideas are helpful.
