Foam Core and Poster Board Marquee Angel


Marquee is all the rage these days, and there are a lot of ways to make them DIY Style. I was able to make my Marquee Angel for only $1, because I had most of the supplies on hand. It was a super easy and fun project that anyone can do. Plus you don't have to make an angel...you could use the same concept for any shape you want or make letters or numbers.

Once all the lights were installed I cut stripes of white poster board and used hot glue to secure them around the edges of the angel. Then I mounted it on some boards and placed it on my mantel!
