paper lantern sports balls

when we moved owen to a big boy room last fall, i used a lot of ideas from rate my space to decorate his sports themed room. i came across a space with this great sports ball light fixture made from paper lanterns. i couldn't get my hands on the only one i could find, made by home interiors, so i made my own!

i ordered 4 lanterns to make the 4 sports balls-
large orange round: basketball
large brown oval: football
large white round: soccer ball
small white round: baseball

jay helped me pencil & tape the designs off w/masking tape, then i just took a paint pen to each one to turn them into sports balls! we hooked them up using a triple socket cord kit (the baseball does not have a light) and staggered the heights from the ceiling. the light is so fun & different & owen loves them as much as we do!
