I love perusing holiday catalogs at this time of year. There is so much inspiration, especially if you are crafty like me!

One of my favorite catalogs is Ballard Designs. I always find tons of fun ideas in those pages!

The J and the Y were made out of metal, and the O was a green wreath. It was so cute, but way too big for my apartment.

I immediately started thinking about how I could get a similar look for my home. And of course, I wanted to create my own lighted holiday marquee sign without spending a ton of money or time!

With the addition of a few berries, the wreath turned out so cute. Plus, I’ll be able to use it again next year.

For the letters, I decorated two Heidi Swap Marquee Kits with gold glitter paper. I first used one of these kits to make my arrow marquee light, and I have been obsessed ever since! They are so fun and simple to use.

I’m so happy with how my lighted holiday marquee sign turned out. It only took a few minutes to make, and it’s such a great addition to my holiday decor!

Start by pulling apart the berries into small clusters. Hot glue the berries to the front of the wreath. I attached five berry clusters to my wreath.

By the way, I finally got a new hot glue gun! I didn’t use it for this project, but I’m hoping my new one leads to fewer burned fingers … ha ha. I’ve had the same glue gun forever! It was passed down from my mom, and she had it for a long while, too.

Trace around the template, then cut it out. Don’t worry if the circular holes aren’t perfect.

Flip the letter over and insert the lights that came with the kit. Insert two AAA batteries in the battery pack.

Repeat these steps with the other letter.
