Home Decor: Flower String Lights

A few posts ago, I included a poll asking what you all would like to see more of on this blog, and there was a good percentage of votes for more non-beauty content. I picked up some pretty flower string lights from Target last weekend, and thought I would photoblog how I decided to use them!


These are technically garden lights, which means they are suitable for outdoor use, but because I don't have a garden, I thought I could use them somewhere inside! They were a reasonable price too: $12.99!


The set comes with one string of ten flowers. One unique thing about these flowers is the petals are metal and adjustable. You can make one flower more closed, and another more open.


I thought these would look nice along my headboard. During Christmastime I like to wrap garland and lights around my headboard, but these are much more suitable for all other seasons.







Hope you all are having a great day!
xx, Allison

  11. So pretty, and so fall appropriate :) I have strings of stars that light up that I have hanging over my window. I put them up a few years ago for Christmas and just never took them down. I only ever light them up during the holiday season though. I liked this post a lot, nonbeauty things are interesting too :)

  14. What a good idea. As obvious at it seems, I never thought to hang lights and decorations from my headboard. I love Christmas and winter, and I definitely go overboard with decorating at that time of year. Thanks for the new tip. Btw, I love those flower lights.

  17. They're so pretty all lit up!!! Do they work as reading lights when you're in bed too? because that would be awesome. :) I totally want these now! But I don't have a headboard anyway so.. :/
