Decorating with a Heidi Swapp Marquee Letter - Process Video
There are options on the back of the box for how you might want to decorate your letter.
You can paint it, washi tape it, add paper, or glitter it.
I chose this fun silver glitter chevron paper by Recollections from Michael's.
I turned the paper over and traced my letter backwards (just like we used to do in school).
Don't forget to trace the circles too.
Once you cut out the letter and holes, you place the paper in the letter and add the bulb caps.
You then string the lights into the bulb caps. Add your batteries and you are ready to use your new marquee letter.
Here it is completed. It took me about 15 minutes.
That included a few interruptions. (pets that wanted attention!)
Here it is turned on.
I placed mine in my craft room on top of one of my Ikea Alex drawer units.
I can reach it easily to turn on.
The battery pack fits perfectly on the bottom of the letter.
I love it that there are no cords and you don't need an outlet!!
This was a fun project and I love it that it didn't take long at all.
These letters are so cute for any room in your home.
I hope you enjoyed this post and enjoy the process video.
