I've been working on some projects for the baby room this week (things are really happening in there, people!), and these were simple to make and made me pretty happy.
I had inherited a whole pile of craft-hand-me-downs (craft-me-downs?) from a friend, and there were three white lantern kits that needed some love. So I broke out my watercolors and decided to give them a little color.
I mean, I realize that you can buy colorful lanterns, but where's the fun in that?
(answer: there's not any)
I opted to not use the light-kits (so many cords!), and instead just tied some ribbon around the frame and stuck them to the ceiling with a couple of push-pins.
(since snapping this picture last week, the lanterns have migrated to the other corner of the room...it must be the weather?)
