Found this blog on the internet. All credits go to a lady in Virginia Beach, VA # confessionsofaserialdiyer.com. Thank you. What a great project. This can easily be changed into a Christmas theme. If you do not have a lantern like this, I saw some at Pier One in Saskatoon yesterday and we will be getting some in at Charter House very shortly.
Would you believe that lantern once looked like this??

I almost threw it away! Now it has a whole new life! I did spray paint it once to go with my Summer porch, but it got another paint job in Rustoleum’s heirloom white for this centerpiece.
Making this was pretty simple. I found all of my floral stems at Michaels. Here’s everything I used:

I started by adding a layer of floral foam to the bottom. Then I hot glued moss to the top to hide the green.

I cut apart the feathery stems…

and added them evenly into the foam:

I did the same with the white flowers…

Adding the gold pumpkin, also from Michael’s, finishes it off.

 JOKE OF THE DAY: I don’t mean to brag but…I finished my 14 day diet in 3 hours and 12 minutes.
