Ornament Filled Lantern with Christmas Lights

Have you ever had ornaments leftover and never knew what to do with them?  Today that happened to me as I was finishing up decorating the office for Christmas.  I had this lantern sitting in the corner and I thought I would throw my leftover gold and white ornaments and a box of battery operated lights and I love how they turned out.  This was so simple and easy and just wanted to share it with you.

Here's what you will need:

Battery Operated Lights (these came from Michael's, 20 strand)

I started by placing the battery pack of the lights in the back corner, set the timer (it goes for 6 hours and then turns off), started filling it with ornaments and then just kept pulling the light strand up as I kept filling it.  It is really goof proof and it looks great.

You could even do this with a big bowl, box or evan hurricane lamps.  They would be so pretty in the guest bathroom at night...I might have to do that!

I will be back in a day or so to share the whole office.  

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Love it great idea. When I managed a Retail store, I did something similar with Frosted Ornaments in a birdbath. We put the lights below them and they glowed like snowballs. So wonderful. I miss that shop at Christmas as it smelled wonderful!


  2. LOVE this! I put a lantern filled with ornaments on my porch and felt like I still needed something... I'm off to find some lights. :)

    PS - Found you on Inspiration Gallery!!
