Recently Centsational Girl began a terrific little weekly ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ round-up that I’ve really enjoyed checking out. When this idea popped up by Ruffled, it reminded me immediately of these West Elm lanterns that I used in this outdoor inspiration board for the May issue of San Diego Magazine.
Pretty similar, right?
So simple and so lovely – these would look beautiful around a garden party or as centerpieces for a wedding. And I love that they’re made out of the metal found on a used radiator cover!! Really, I know it’s crazy. So resourceful. You could also use upcycled perforated metal sheets or purchase from a major home supply store.
A bit of white spray paint for the metal and an immediate transformation. The clover design is an added perk.

Hope you had a lovely weekend! We traveled out to South Bend, Indiana for my brother’s graduation from the University of Notre Dame. We’re having a great time and I had the chance to celebrate my birthday on Sunday with family while there!
