DIY INSPIRATION | Marquee Letters

Home Inspiration, INSPIRATIONS


Creating a marquee sign may be the DIY that has been on my to-do for the longest, and I am finally going to check it off! I love the look of one oversized letter on a wall, or a bunch set on a shelf. As cool as the metal ones are, they can be quite pricey. Good news is, I have seen some really rad ones made out of much less expensive materials. The plan is to come up with something that looks like metal, without breaking the bank. And I Spy DIY Studio will finally get the crafty light-up letters it deserves!  Stay tuned for my DIY!

    Love this idea! My only concern is the exposed cords to have it plugged in…I think it would really take away from the appeal. I hope your DIY has a solution!

    Really cool letters. How do they stay lit? Battery or plug in?

    Hi! I just love your website, it has so many good ideas!
    I’ve always loved this kind of letters, but I never had the opportunity to make one 🙁
    I guess that you could use some cardboard and paint it with some kind of metallic spray and for the interior, perhaps you could use some foam and then insert a type of Christmas lights…Maybe it could work 🙂
