Cheap & cute ceiling hanging (in place of mobile?) idea

http://littlelovely.typepad.com/littlelovely/2010/01/nursery-diy-pom-poms.html 

I made some of these (and I am NOT crafty) and am planning on hanging them in my blue/brown boy nursery.  The walls are blue and the recessed ceiling is chocolate brown, and I don't have a mobile.

 I was thinking I might use wired (hmmm - or braided) ribbon instead of fishing wire, and then tie a bow at the top and have long tails. WDYT????

  • I personally don't get the whole pom-pom thing.  BUT, here's a site where someone did blue & brown ones & hung them with ribbon so you can see how it looks:

  • My friend purchased something like this (it was like Dec 2008) from Pottery Barn for her little girls room. You could easily go to a place like Archiver's and punch out shapes (you can use their die-cuts, if you buy their paper, it's pretty reasonable) and string them together. I like the pom idea though, and when they get dusty you can just throw them out!

    It's just paper cut outs, so it would be very easy to make. I really like you pom-pom idea. They'd be so cheap when they got icky-dusty I could just toss them out!!
