I've seen these on the forum and decided to attempt! Pretty easy!
Here's how:
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.
Enjoy!

Love not having to construct all the letters. Curious how much each letter cost.
Normally, they are $4.49 each, but the ladies at JoAnns let me use a different 40% off coupon for each letter in one transaction. They even gave me their coupons...they were awesome! About $32. for it all...I had the lights already and the paint
