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
foam paint brush
First, cut out the face of your cardboard letters.
Paint the outside and inside.
Using a white colored pencil or chalk, mark where each light bulb will poke through. They should be about 2 inches a part.
Drill a 29/6 inch hole through each white mark. This will make a hole large enough for the bulb.
Push each light bulb through.
Tie up remaining strand with zip tie.
Plug in your lights and see your marquee lights glow!
