This is my first post about the DIY's the fiance & made I for our engagment party :)
First you'll need some paper mâché letters I found mine at Joanns
You'll need to cut out the front part of the letters
we just used an exacto
It should look like this when you are finished.
If you have any ripped edges or you'd like to even out an edge
just use a masking tape to smooth it out before you spray paint.
Next, space out where you want your lights to go
and use a hand drill to make your holes.
Here's a sample of what it looks like with the bulbs in place.
BTW, we bought the string lights at Target
Next spray paint your letters, we used a white base for ours
spray paint 2-3 coats & let it dry.
Once it's dried spray it with Krylons GLITTERBLAST
(LOVE LOVE the Glitterblast!)
Now add the bulbs & light up your Marquee Lights!!!!
