Today I´ll show you how to make this cute lamp that will be the perfect decoration for a nursery. You´ll be able to personalize it with a letter or your favourite quote.

It´ll add a dimmed light that will be perfect as an accent in the decoration and useful too.

You can make it as a baby shower gift, and you´ll impress the mom to be.

Step 7: Hang It Up

The emboridery ring is light and will be easy to hang up.

My string lights are battery operated, I´m using rechargable batteries and the box of batteries is well hidden behind the paper. So you don´t have to worry with weird wires that will ruin your perfect wall.
