In this post: A simple marquee letter DIY – using an easy to find raw metal letter from a popular craft store, a drill and some mini LED string lights.
You guys, I have wanted a marquee letter forever! So when I saw these adorable raw mini metal letters at Michael’s last week, I had an awesome idea – a mini marquee letter DIY. And it’s so easy too, since the metal letter is already made for you.
Mini Marquee Letter DIY Hack
1. With a water based marker, mark where you want your light bulbs to be.
2. Using a drill bit that’s a little bigger than the LED light bulbs (we used 1/8″), drill holes where marked.
3. Put each bulb through a hole from the back and hot glue in place.
4. Shove all the extra wiring and LED bulbs in back. Of course if you don’t like the hot mess (below) you could neatly place the wires in back.
Don’t you just love it?!
Approximate Price breakdown:
- Metal letter $9
- LED Christmas lights $5
Total approximately $15
Totally something you can do too, yes?
