Customizable Marquee Letters

I found these customizable marquee letters by Heidi Swapp at Michaels.  I used them as decorations for the Rowselettes first birthday party, and later as updated decor in their nursery.  They were super fun and easy to customize in the colors I wanted.  These would be great to use in your holiday decor or as a cute holiday gift for someone special.

What you need:
  • Marquee Letter Kit
  • Scrap Book Paper
  • Scissors
  • Washi Tape
  • Hole Punch

Here is what the kit looks like when you buy it.  It comes with the blank letter, a letter template, and white lights with clear bulbs.
 Trace the letter template on the back side of your scrap book paper (including the holes), then cut out with your scissors.  Use the hole punch to make the holes for the lights.  You may need to do a little trimming to make it fit correctly. 
 I was able to buy turquoise colored bulbs for my lights, which worked perfectly with my color scheme.

 I used thick washi tape for the outside of the letter and thin washi tape for the inside. (As you can see, in my household, crafting requires beer.)
Here is what it looks like all lit up.  Pretty neat!
