Like Paul Revere, I love a lantern. They are a decor staple in my home. They are easy and I love the familiar four-sided glass panes and the tiny cabinet pull to open up one side for candles, acorns or ornaments.
I love lanterns, but at some point, I found myself with a dozen lanterns. It is the Costco mentality of shopping-if I need one jar of Ragu, I might as well buy the plastic bound case of twelve spaghetti sauces.
So with my ever-growing collection, I found ways to rethink outside the candle in the lantern theme. It turns out lanterns are fun to fill with seasonal decor. And that’s how my bunny took center stage inside a lantern.
THE CUTEST SPRING LANTERN
This is also the story of a broken lantern and a repurposed idea. After an aggressive pull of the lantern’s door, I ripped the back panel off my Homegoods lantern. This is one of my tallest lanterns measuring in at 30 inches. That is 1/2 my height!
The funny thing is that this cutest spring lantern would not have been possible without the recent lantern egress.
With the back door ripped off the hinges I was able to fit in my cutest bunny that makes an appearance every spring.
SPRING LANTERN ELEMENTS
To add a little color I substituted eggs for the grass.
And my oversize bunny was not going to be upstaged by other bunnies. The carrots just tied this lantern together.
With a huge collection of eggs it was an easy way to layer the bottom of the lantern.And still have plenty for more spring decor!
Is this not the cutest bunny peering out from the glass lantern? I love the pop of orange against my navy walls.
I would love it if you pinned this bunny lantern or follow me on Pinterest.
