How To Make Marquee Letter Lights


We love the old-timey marquee letters offered at Urban Outfitters, but the price tag is prohibitive. Karen achieved the same look of these lights for her wedding at a fraction of the cost and documented the process.

The basic materials are foam board and lights along with a few other easily obtainable items. We're picturing these in circus-themed bedrooms or kids' carnival parties. Or maybe try spelling out 'Ho Ho Ho' in your front yard for the holidays this year.
