until I came across this super adorable blog Oh Happy Day.
I love the little lanterns she made and decided that I could totally do that with the big lantern.
I started with the black and then went to navy blue and finished with baby blue. The transition isn't as subtle as I wanted originally but I am still quite pleased with it.
It now resides above our dining table.
Isn't crepe paper amazing?
I ordered every color The Crepe Paper Store had in stock.
And the shipping took no time at all which is awesome. love it!
