Lighted Christmas Marquee DIY
With the second to last weekend approaching, I'm slightly freaking out over here! I have shopping that I have barely started, parties that I have nothing to wear for, and my christmas tree is still hanging out with just the lights (gotta finish the decorating tonight when I get back from Miami). All this travel is not helping, when it comes to cross things off my "to-do" list. However, last weekend I was able to complete this DIY project, inspired by A Beautiful Mess. When I saw the Christmas Marquee that created, which was a genius idea by the way, I knew I had to make one of my own. So I did!
The project proved to be a little more work that I have anticipated, but I managed to complete it, with the help of my love, and I couldn't be more thrilled with the outcome. I used a few different materials, but the general idea was there. Keep reading to see a "step-by-step" and a few more pics of the end result.
