Star Light, Star Bright

010

Marquee letters are all the rage … but they are metal, large and expensive.

Heidi Swapp came out with a smaller version you can make to match your house. Called Marquee Love, these ones sell for $12.99 and come in all of the letters of the alphabet and a few shapes. I started with a star to see how I would like it.

The box contains the white chipboard shape, the lights, cord and battery pack and a template for covering the inside with paper.

001I painted mine with Gold Distress Paint as a base.

003Then I went around the edges with Archival Ink in Potting Soil.

On the inside of the piece, I added IndigoBlu Megaflake in Morris Dance. I love the aged appearance it gives …

008

Then it was just a matter of sticking in the lights and attaching the cord and battery pack …

Pretty cool, eh?!

  1. I love this! I’ve looked at the ones at Michael’s, and never bought one – too big and too expensive. This, I like! Are they only available through the Marquee Love site? Or can you order them too?
