Put Your Name in Lights Yourself


Have you seen those adorable marquee lights at a wedding reception? You can make your own!

You will need:
  • multi-surface paint (your color choice)
  • 12-inch paper mache letters from any craft store
  • Christmas lights
  • foam paint brush
  • white pencil/chalk
  • drill
  • zip tie
Instructions:
  1. First, cut out the face of your cardboard letters.
  2. Paint the outside and inside.
  3. Using a white colored pencil or chalk, mark where each light bulb will poke through. They should be about 2 inches a part.
  4. Drill a 29/6 inch hole through each white mark. This will make a hole large enough for the bulb.
  5. Push each light bulb through.
  6. Tie up remaining strand with zip tie.
  7. Plug in your lights and see your marquee lights glow!
