Did anyone else go a little crazy at after-Christmas clearance this year? I stocked up on so much tissue paper, gift bags, and a few supplies to make these fun DIY Marquee Letters – perfect for Valentine’s Day!
Mmm-hmm. Does this idea look familiar? Well since I’m the younger sister, I get to copy Holly, right? And I pretty much do all the time. It’s like, part of my job description or something.
These JOY letters were one of my favorite projects she did last year, so I snatched up a bunch of mini Christmas ornaments to make my own LOVE letters!
Here’s the BEST part! With just 5 letters you can get TWO decorations for different holidays out of this DIY – the letters L, N, O, E, V spell both LOVE and NOEL! Woo-hoo. It’s never to early to think about Christmas
I used both the shiny and glittered mini ball ornaments for the “lights” of the marquee!
Another project I (ahem) copied were THESE darling tissue tassels! I used Holly’s tutorial but started with a half sheet of tissue paper instead of a full sheet to make them a little smaller. Yeah, that gold polka dot tissue paper makes me pretty darn happy – another after-Christmas find!
I am totally loving these letters! They’re big enough of a statement piece that I just added the banner to my little shelf/wannabe mantel and am done decorating for Valentine’s Day! (I’m sure they’ll stay awhile longer than that…)
