I’m so excited to share my September Michaels Makers Challenge with you today! Our first project of the year was titled ‘Craft Pumpkins’ and I was really excited to take on the task. After browsing through all the fabulous items at my local Michaels store, I decided that I wanted to try to create some fun DIY MARQUEE LIGHT FALL LETTER PUMPKINS! I’m so happy with how they turned out!
To kick off fall in your own home, visit Michaels.com and check out the variety of craft pumpkins available – there is every color, shape and size you could ever want!
DIY Fall + Halloween Marquee Light Letter Pumpkins Tutorial-
I love Heidi Swapp’s vintage inspired marquee letters and have used them for so many projects!
Step 1- Using the letter insert included with the Marquee letter, trace the outline of a letter of choice onto the front of your craft pumpkin.
Step 2- Using an X-Acto knife, carefully cut out the letter shape from your pumpkin. Please note, cut the letter a little larger than the actual pattern, as demonstrated below.
Step 3- Paint or decorate your marquee lights as desired.
Step 4- Insert your letter into the front of your pumpkins, pushing the letter about 1/2 way in.
Turn on your marquee letter lights (battery operated) and enjoy your new fall vintage marquee light pumpkins!
