Holiday Glow with Lights from Terrain

We’ve always been fond of Terrain for its garden staples that are pretty enough to leave on view–copper pitchforks, linen-wrapped clay planters, rain boots handmade in France. But we’re especially ardent fans during the holidays:

This year–though we don’t have all our decorating schemes laid out quite yet–we know we’ll anchor holiday displays with lights, and lots of them. Year after year, some of the best ones we find are from Terrain.

Above: Terrain’s Twig Lights are perennial favorites we pull out in time for Thanksgiving. Here, Terrain gathered several bunches together into a chandelier to create a centerpiece over the Thanksgiving table. Replicate the look in How-To: A Woodland Chandelier

Above: A better way to celebrate Black Friday? We think so. Set the mood for hygge with Terrain’s Vintage Drop Lights or Festival Lights. Opt for a new take on dessert–see DIY Spiced S’mores Kits–while you’re at it. 

Above: Skip the grounded Thanksgiving centerpiece and opt for something handmade overhead. The ingredients for this DIY Autumn Lantern are simple–a Sphere Hanging Basket; Filigree Cutout Hurricane, and Steel Shepherd’s Hook for hanging. Add a dried wreath, grains, and branches and you’re nearly there. Full instructions in How-To: Autumn Lantern

Above: Terrain’s Stargazer Lights will be climbing all over our homes and gardens in a few weeks’ time; the copper wire-bound warm white lights can be used indoors or out.

Above: A Gardenista favorite for holiday decor: tree branches tightly wound in wire lights. (In copper, the Stargazer Lights look nice even unlit.)

Above: This simple idea has us thinking about truly instant holiday decor; drop tiny wire lights into a vessel and you’re done.

Above: By the stairs are the Sphere Hanging Baskets used in the Thanksgiving candlelit chandelier mentioned above. After Thanksgiving dinner, the orbs become Christmas decor. 

Above: Stargazer Lights are available in a 6-foot-long Battery-Powered Strand or 15-foot and 100-foot hardwired lengths.
