Getting Crafty

My friend Emma and I have once again teamed up for this week's Getting Crafty (you will remember her from our Terrarium DIY). This time, we decided to tackle the ever-popular Marquee Light. We will both admit that this was definitely a time consuming project, but totally worth the results (a glass of crafting wine was also key!). For the complete step-by-step guide we followed, click here.

List of Items Required:

  • White foam board (from the Dollar Store)
  • White bristol board (from the Dollar Store)
  • Stencil
  • Cutting board
  • Exacto knife
  • Hot glue gun
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • C7 white lights (Canadian Tire)
  • Strong tape
  • Time: Roughly 3 hours
  • Cost: Roughly $15.00
Trace out  your shape, leaving sufficient too for the lights, on the foam board.
Evenly space out your holes for the lights and trace a circle the width of the bottom of the light bulb (the green part).
Take your time ensuring the spacing is correct. There were 25 lights on a string so we made 25 holes.
Next, carefully cut out each hole (this is a good time to open that bottle of wine and patience...)
Now cut out strips using the bristol board to make your shape 3-D. Our strips were roughly 2.5 inches wide.
Using the glue gun, attach the strips.
Insert the lights and voila!
