Outdoor lanterns for a get together or party certainly set the mood, and they can ensure your candles stay lit in a windy city. That said, they can be pricey. If you're like me and would rather put your money where your mouth is, literally on the good food instead of on the table decor, check out this simple diy to cut costs and keep the style up!
Victoria over at A Subtle Revelry is always one to make her own party decor and is a firm believer that simple shapes, color and accents can go a long way to dress a space and making it pleasing. The same holds true with this quick diy project that puts old bottles, carafes and vases to use.
If you're one of the rare few who doesn't have a nook in their house filled with clear glass vases, they can be found simply (and inexpensively) enough at any local thrift store across America. Victoria puts basic washers found at the hardware store and strips of leather together with a little glue to create this great outdoor look without a large overhead cost. Set the mood at your next get together after you check out the full tutorial below.
