When Michaels has a clearance sale, I'm there!



Michaels is actually my weekly ritual, and while I always swooned over the Heidi Swapp products, it wasn't until a few weeks ago that I came home with my first purchase: the letter "V" marquee sign.  



It was under $10, and comes in white with clear plastic bulbs for the lights.  But I spent a few extra dollars for pink bulbs and the wrapping paper is also from there.



I like how it brings a little extra light and sparkle to my daughter's room.  To replicate this project, you will need a few things:




  • Heidi Swapp Marquee sign in your choice of letter or shape

  • Wrapping paper in your favourite pattern

  • Double-sided tape

  • Scissors





The sign comes with a removable paper "V" and I used that to attach to the back side of the wrapping paper with double-sided tape.  Then, I cut out the "V" shape with scissors and inserted it back into the sign.  I popped each light hole carefully with a light from the back side as I inserted it through.  I found it easier to work one light at a time, attaching a bulb to it as I worked along.




The project took a total of 15 minutes.  For now, it's on my daughter's dresser until I can decide if I should hang it on the wall or not. 





Oh, and by the way, "V" is for her name: Victoria.  (Insert mama's giant smile right here).


Thanks all for taking a look at today's simple DIY.  I hope you enjoyed it.  Neither Heidi Swapp nor Michaels paid me to boost their products today.  I share because I care and I enjoyed this project very much.  If you'd like to learn more about her products though, click HERE for her website.


Have a beautiful day :)
