o.p.p. – gourd lanterns

*from craftzine.com blog 'gourd lanterns'

northern hemispherians rejoyce… fall is here and long live the days of pumpkin patches, corn mazes, apple orchards, hayrack rides, carving pumpkins, spiced scented candles and so many other amazingly cozy harvesty things.  for those of you that love the festive decor… keep your gourds going with a second life.  sure you can dry them out and make musical maracas, but why not go this less traveled route of poking holes and slapping in a string of lights to make lanterns perfectly suitable for spring, summer, winter and especially fall.
