Autumn Leaf Lighting

There is nothing more lovely than a beautiful Autumn day! It is the perfect time of year to spend outside with family and friends. Recently, I gave my summer lighting a fall makeover using silk leaves. I couldn’t be more thrilled with the final look! The vibrant hues make my patio come alive!

I purchased a few bags of silk leaves at Joann Fabrics for a couple of dollars. I also saw similar leaves at Michael’s and Dollar Tree. They were all inexpensive! I folded the leaf in half closer to the bottom and cut a slit in it.

My lights have a little hook on the base so I am able to push it through the leaves to attach them. I put at least two on each light. These light sets are from Target. If you don’t have this style of lighting the same technique could easily be done to a string of twinkle lights – wrap it around a railing or sting on a tree in the yard!

I used an antique process on this last photo…I thought it looked cool, so I am sharing it!

    Great idea! I do have a question though… I can see the one end of your lights are attached to your house, but what about the other end? Thanks!

    Your lights looks so pretty, love the style of lights so you can put leaves on light spot. I love to put lights out in the Fall season as well as holiday times. The lights make things so cheerful. After the holidays I hate to take them down. I”ll put some in my front window and on front porch railing with some Fall garland leaves. Love colors on silk leaves that are available. Think a trip to $tree is in order.
    I’ll look forward to seeing what other Fall decorations you do in or around your home. Happy week
