Lighting fixture

I ordered a light fixture for the boys room off of EBAY and couldn't have been more excited... well, until it arrived. It was MUCH smaller that I expected. I loved it, but wasn't so sure how well it would work. My suspicions were confirmed whey my hubby took down the ceiling fan and the hole in the ceiling was larger than the fixture. HMMMMM Well, he told me not to worry he could take care of the extra space.

He did manage to cover most of the hole, but I still had the problem of the silver and crack showing around the edge of the fixture. Vinyl to the rescue. I found a cute sprocket like shape to cut in various sizes and colors.

So after giving my cricut a quick workout, I had a cute solution that I loved almost as much as my boys did. :)

I had a few sprockets left over and decided to decorate the light switch too. :)
