Recently, I was visiting our neighbor Joel and was really impressed with his back yard. We live in a townhouse community and he had fenced in his backyard. He lined the fence with tealight lanterns for outdoor lighting. I adore this look! Especially for get together and parties. Absolutely gorgeous and so frugal!
Ikea sells the Rotera lantern for tealights for $3.99 per piece. They are suitable for outdoor use and can be purchased here. They also sell Glimma tealights in packs of 100 for $3.99, which can be found here. If you have extra money or time to shop around, they come in many different styles that evoke memories of the eastern shore or Morocco depending on your tastes.

Thanks for the ideas and the photos! We’re thinking about doing my daughter’s reception in our backyard, and we’d love to decorate the yard to make it look more exciting. I especially love the way your neighbor hung his lanterns on the fence. Beautiful!
This is a very interesting post and it may be interesting for our customers, too. Do you allow me to translate the post into german making it easyer to understand for our customers?

My mom wanted to add lightings on our outdoor porch. It was explained here that there are lanterns that are suitable outdoors. Furthermore, it’s recommended to go to trusted shops when planning to have hanging star lanterns.
