What’s the special occasion? It’s another day that the world gets to enjoy the wonder of you and your wonderful creativity! A strand of Pier 1 Silver Sphere Glimmer Strings® adds a glamorous glow to your everyday decor. The flexible wire allows you to weave and shape them around any existing display.

Some of our unique finds are naturals for pairing with a strand of Glimmer Strings®, like our Ivory Mother-of-Pearl Mirror, inlaid with iridescent tiles. Golden frames, lanterns and accents bask in the glow, and our Deco Wick™ Golden Distressed LED Candle works with the available remote, too.

We love the traditional decor of fall, but we also think it’s OK to mix things up with a fresh, new look. This one relies on our Rustic Rose Hurricanes, modern lanterns with eye-catching angles, faux succulents and our Jeweled branch Glimmer Strings®. And the owls? We can still be a little traditional, right?

Create This Look

Create fall glimmer strings look. First step.

First - Get your materials together and choose a lantern that fits your style. We went with our Gold Modern Lantern for its color and interesting geometric angles.

Next - Experiment with filling the edges of the lantern with your Glimmer Strings®. They’ll stay where you place them. This one required a 10-foot strand.

Finally - Layer in your faux succulents and rearrange the Glimmer Strings®, if necessary. If you’re using the optional remote, this is a good time to test it out.

Here’s our favorite new way to create an unforgettable fall display. We wove together a wreath using our Faux Hydrangea Stems and Faux Acorn Branches, and wrapped it in 20 feet of our Pure White Glimmer Strings®. Then we placed it in our Live Edge Dakota Wooden Serving Bowl and topped it off with a hand- painted pumpkin. We think the result is absolutely stunning!
