DIY Marquee Letter Lamp

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

I may have mentioned before, but I’m not particularly crafty or handy. But this finished lamp is so glamorous, and the steps from Design*Sponge so straightforward, it had me googling where I could get foam core at 11pm (answer: in Boston, nowhere).

So I wasn’t exactly X-acto-ing my own marquee letter last night, but that didn’t stop me from dreaming up a few ideas on how to display the finished product. Besides the chic letter-on-the-mantle, lit marquees would look great as an “EAT” sign in the kitchen, a fun way to personalize a kid’s room, or as the coolest Oscar party decorations ever. Think of the possibilities!
