Quick & Easy Autumn Chandelier!





Getting ready to host a bunch of people for the HUGE Notre Dame - USC football game this weekend under the lights, the South Bend dining room needed a little ambiance.  So, I took a strand of extra leaf garland I had left in the bin and simply placed it around the chandelier being careful to avoid contact with the lights.


To add just a little bit more bling, I took my fall ribbon which was copper orange metallic on one side and brown velvet on the other and cut it into six little pieces.  I then wrapped one around each candle light and secured it with clear packing tape.  It took all of ten minutes, cost $0, and it really adds warmth to the space.   

The light is a hand painted antique with a ceramic body and candle plates and it came with the house.  I would love to change it out but I don't think I would have the heart to take it down.  You can tell it is old because of the elongated octagon chain links - so cool!

There are these small windows next to the fireplace and I found these awesome RAZ Imports ( I love RAZ) black glitter corner spider webs with a big furry spider attached.  So cute!


And to add a touch of fall to lamps, I found these pics at Hobby Lobby - I think this one was $2.99 with 50% - and I simply bend the wire to hook over the top of the shade.  So easy and it looks great!
