paper lanterns and a white orb light arranged as a mobile above the crib
I was inspired by the paper lantern decorations I have seen on this website.
I love clean crisp lines, calming neutral colors, and modern elements.
I bought the paper lantern stars at Earthbound Trading Co. in our local mall for about $7 a piece. The circle ones are from Party City and the Martha Stewart white ones are from Michaels craft store. Some were bought individually, others as a set. They are extremely easy to assembly, and even easier to hang. I used fishing line and thumbtacks. The globe light was bought at a garage sale for $5, I simply rewired it with a longer cord and switch.
The globe light really brings the whole mobile together, I love turning the lights off at night and looking at it!
Stay with a few basic colors that are used in the nursery and add a couple different shapes for variety. You can either buy light kits for each lantern, or add a hanging soft light as I have done.
