Would you love for your baby girl to have a designer lampshade in her room but don’t want to pay a fortune? Create your own with a pink yarn lampshade. Use a 24-inch beach ball, and cover the air valve with a small plastic plate. Then, take your pink yarn and submerge it into a fabric stiffener, working the liquid into the yard.

When you remove the yarn from the liquid, squeegee off any extra stiffener, and then begin wrapping the yarn across the beach ball. Allow the fixture to dry for 24 hours before deflating the beach ball. Finally, you’ll be ready to hang the lampshade.

2. Stuffed Animal Storage Swing

The hooks can allow your new swing to hang from your ceiling, giving your baby girl a fun place to store her teddy bears and dolls.
