I decided on Friday that I really wanted some marquee letters, but vintage and even wooden ones are still hella expensive, so I used this diy tutorial. The only differences: I used 3 pieces of poster board with a grid for easier cutting, I got two boxes of lights from Target for $10 each, I used the coin method, and I didn’t used silver spray paint. Grand total: $45.
This must be the most beautiful DIY tutorial I have ever seen. And it so happens to be in style of this weekend. Found on Ulicam, a very nice blog by Ulrika Kestere, photographer and illustrator. For the whole tutorial and lot’s of inspiration, click here.
Take an old sweater. Cut a slit in along the shoulder down about 7”. Fold over raw edge and sew in place. Sew a piece of ribbon about 15” long to one side of neckline and another ribbon to the other side of the neckline. Tie together!
