Paper Mache Marquee Letter

Here's a budget friendly way to create your own marquee letter!


  • 24" Paper Mache Letter
  • Globe String Lights
  • X-Acto Knife

  1. Lay the letter onto a flat surface and make sure it is facing the correct way (not backwards or upside down).
  2. Carefully cut the top of the letter off and remove any paper remains inside.
  3. Use a pencil to mark where you want the lights.
  4. Unscrew the globes from the string of lights. 
  5. Use the knife to cut holes large enough for each bulb. 
  6. Insert each bulb into every hole.
  7. Screw the globe back onto each light.

Now, it's ready to display!

Creative Tip! Paint the letter and let it dry completely before inserting the lights.
