DIY Marquee

DIY Marquee

I finally got around to eating all the chocolates in this cute box of Godiva chocolates I got this Valentine’s Day and thought the heart shaped box would make a cute mini marquee for my house.

Step one is by far the best step of this DIY, eat a box of chocolates. Yep, do it!

Next, you will need to paint the lid of the box white. I used Rustoleum paint in glossy white to make sure the light would beautifully reflect. If you don’t happen to have a box of chocolates laying around, you can use a paper mache box instead which is available in a variety of shapes including hearts.

Flip the painted heart shaped box over and using a sharp pencil poke small evenly-spaced holes along the edge of the box so that there is one hole per light bulb.

Using a set of mini battery operated lights push one light bulb through each hole.

Here is the marquee all done with the lights on!

Girly and fabulous, I love this quick DIY so much.
