Sometimes the hardest part of decorating is getting out of the everyday normalness of our stuff. Whether decorating for a party or for everyday I often get stuck in the same old structure – pillows must go here, lighting looks like this…
What if the secret to decorating is switching it all up?
Putting items where you’d least expect them? Try it! Like painting a set of porch patio lights with funny girl faces and hanging them up indoors. Using outdoor pillows to decorate inside. Grab a planter to repurpose as a drink chilling station and glass pitchers become your new favorite place to stick blooming stems. I love the challenge of reimagining what we have and how it can be best used to bring joy.
These lights are seriously my favorite! They sure bring a lot of fresh joy to the table. Such a fun combination of whimsy and color and the bright spot of our repurposing this spring.
To make the funny face party lights, purchase a strand of white lantern patio lights, paints and a black sharpie. Pop the lanterns off the lights and paint on the hair. Follow up by filling in the faces with sharpies. I love this fun bouffant style funny face combination – but these could easily be made to mimic anyone’s face for a party. Say your 3 yr old, or dad’s face for his 60th (wouldn’t he just die!?!). I love the idea of creating a set as family portraits and using them to brighten up the photo gallery wall.
Allow the paint to fully dry and pop the lights back on for a fresh take on a summer decorating essentials.
