I've seen Marquee Letter how-tos all over the blogosphere. But for whatever reason, they are always the most comples how-tos ever. They involve far too much cutting of cardboard and creating letters from scratch. My favorite how-tos involve five steps or less.
So here it is, marquee letters in five steps or less.
1) Drive on over to Hobby Lobby and buy some 3-D cardboard letters to spell out whatever you'd like.
2) Cut off the front side of the letters.
3) Spray paint.
4) Drill holes for lights.
5) String lights.
There you have it. They seriously look amazing at night! And since we're sharing living rooms, can I show you the new set-up? I'm in love.
On that note, Happy Friday! Get out there and enjoy your weekend! We'll be hosting an Oscars party on Sunday night and will of course be making good use of the living room bar! Anyone else watching?? (And you know I'll be live tweeting, so follow me over on twitter, @ohhelloemily.)
