Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:less than an hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Remove your Marquee Love Letter, lights, bulbs and template from the box. Tip: if the template gets tucked into the back of the letter itself, place a pencil into one hole through the back and lift up, releasing the template from the back of the letter.
  • 2
    Using your template, trace your letter(s) onto the back of a favorite piece of decorative paper or cardstock. Trim.
  • 3
    Cut holes by either tracing the holes along with tracing the letter and punch your holes using a hole punch. Or, place your cut decorative paper/cardstock into your letter and use a pencil to pierce a hole through your paper in all of the existing holes. (Be sure the holes you punch are not bigger than the original holes.)
  • 4
    Once you have the hole ready you can either glue your decorative paper/cardstock down to your letter or let the lights hold it in place. Tip: it's always fun to change out the paper. If you intend to do this, do not glue the paper down.
  • 5
    From the front of your letter, push in the bulb caps into each hole. Using the instruction guide provided, string the lights in the back of each letter. Add batteries. Flip the switch and ENJOY!
