Paper Chandelier for a Baby Nursery

Sara from Embrace My Space put a playful twist on the “effortless and elegant” shape of West Elm’s Capiz Shell Chandelier for her baby’s nursery. Sara started with a hanging plant basket, spray painted it white, and then added ribbons with colorful paper circles that she punched from cardstock. As Sara points out, “you could use this method for creating something sleek and chic for any room in your home.  Just swap out the colors and even the type of cardstock and you’ll have a neat faux chandelier that you can use to fancy up a boring corner of your space.”

Framed Alphabet Art

When it came time to decorate her second child’s nursery, Danielle at House in the South knew she wanted to include an alphabet print. Here’s what she has to say: “After seeing the Alphabet Zoo nursery art from ZGallerie, I ran across a pack of animal alphabet cards by Jenn Ski the creator of the ZGallerie piece. With a few on-hand craft items I used them to make a knock off that I am extremely pleased with.” How cool is it that the cards Danielle found were by the same artist as her inspiration???

I love how Elisa clustered the deer on the wall with other items for a gallery effect. Too cute!

Leah of Moss Eclectic had only one item on her must-have list for her son’s nursery – a rope mirror like the beauty she’d been admiring from Restoration Hardware. Since the $650 original would have totally blown the nursery budget out of the water, Leah instead turned the friendly-on-the-wallet IKEA for a round mirror. With some eye hooks and thick rope, Leah created this awesome replica!
