Alternative or Hack for Ikea's Blimp Pendant?

Alternative or Hack for Ikea's Blimp Pendant?

Q: Of course now that Ikea has discontinued the Blimp pendant light I realize that I should have bought it ages ago even though I didn't have a use for it. NOW I have a use for it and I can't even find something remotely similar. It would be perfect for my boys' playhouse/hideout/reading nook for ambient lighting. I can't even find one on eBay! I want it to be shapes (or stars and moons like the Blimp, and not just circles) and hang from the ceiling. I had thought about mounting one of those inexpensive star projector night lights, but I think they might be too flimsy and really not was I was looking for. My question would be if anyone knew an inexpensive replacement for this, or a way to DIY something close to the original. Please help!
