Paper Lanterns- girls room update.....

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am always on the lookout for simple, inexpensive ways to give quick updates to the rooms in my own home. I just love to keep things fresh and interesting! Of course, I do believe that these updates should not break the bank :)

My latest budget inspiration came while I was out and about last week. I came across a whole selection of Martha Stewart crafts on clearance for $5 each. These items are really promoted as wedding decor, but I couldn't help but think how cute they would look in my daughters room ;)

Here's how they turned out....

    The set of 3 paper lanterns (2 med ,1 large) was a steal at $5. I just adore the eyelet detail.... I hung them from the ceiling with a silver ball thumbtack and a little fishing line. To add more drama I also purchase this glitter paper garland (also $5) and cut it into strips, which I attached to the wall with simple invisible tape.....what an easy way to bring some drama to the bed!

 I couldn't resist this gorgeous bedside lamp with a bow from Homsense! When we turned it on we got a delightful surprise...the inside is lined in a Parisian themed material which shows through when it's lit :)

These battery operated pre-lit lanterns draped around my daughters mirror (also on sale for $5) add a soft glow and make her feel like a movie-star....I'd say that's money well spent ;)
