There are loads of decorative DIY crafting ideas out there but sometimes they catch our eye and we think are worth sharing.

DIY paper orb lightsThis one is not a difficult one to achieve but the result is a beautiful paper light shade which would make a great piece whether it is used as a light or not. You can see more pics on and there are full instructions. These were made by Heather Jennings of Poppy Haus.

The idea is simple Рtake a regular paper lantern type shade, then glue gun white paper cupcake cases all over the surface. Follow this by glueing smaller decorative petit fours papers inside each one Рthe ones shown in the pictures are ideal as they give a lovely anemone look to the shade.
