Marquee Lights From Recycled K-Cups


Instead of going the traditional route when designing a marquee light heart, I decided instead to use a string of pink Christmas lights and some leftover K-cups I had been saving.
I stained a piece of plywood, drilled holes in it in a heart shape (enough to accomodate the light string) and then glued on the kcups and poked only the bulb of the lights though the bottom of the cups)
The effect was exactly

If you have a Keurig.. chances are you have WAAAY too many empty ones of these to know what to do with.

To create a marquee light: Drill out your pattern on plywood

I added the word "love" in the center to dress it up a little bit.
