Diy watercolor marquee letter

I’m such a huge fan of these marquee letters! I love the Heidi swapp brand. She includes a template that fits in each letter for you to spray paint or glitter up or cut out of scrapbook paper.  and so I combined my love of Marquee letters with my love of watercolor! 

 

 

It actually sits in my daughters room. This was like two decorations ago. I have her whole room photographed! I hope to get her room post up soon!

I got this little marquee from Target…

but now they are at most craft stores (they even have little ones at hobby lobby!

I took the template out. traced around it on some watercolor paper and paint! the best part! (I use these watercolors) how to decorate marquee letters

Once dry, cut out and place in marquee. The marquee comes with instructions on how to place the lights in…but it’s a matter of popping the bulb into place in the front (I took a pencil and pre popped some holes so they went in easier!

and these fun marquee letters are totally battery operated! I love that! you can place them anywhere and don’t have to worry about being close to a plug in! (I just add a little poster putty and stick it in the back!  battery operated marquee letter

I actually love to give these marquee letters as gifts to my daughter’s teen friends. They can leave white…or decorate them however they want!
