I've seen these on the forum and decided to attempt! Pretty easy!
Paper Mache letters purchased at JoAnn's (call first, because not every store carries these...they are available online for order also)
With a knife, we cut the face off each letter. Then painted the inside with bright orange, and outsides with black craft paint.
Once dryed, we drilled holes to fit mini halloween lights...I used purple.
Started at one end, and began to string. We drilled the holes about 2" apart, seemed to work perfect. The end results are awesome! I always am looking for something to fill this shelf which is a permanant fixture in the family room.
