This is a super easy project and can be adapted for so many important occasions! Graduations, Weddings, Baby Showers…. the list goes on and on!

First I have to give my daughter credit for this… it’s her project and I’m just posting it on her behalf.
You’ll need:
A strand of lights – color of your choice
Poster board – color of your choice
Printed out letters or numbers
Punch/ice pick/ screwdriver, etc – something to poke through
Thumb tacks/double sided tape
First print out your letters, numbers, symbols, etc. My daughter chose her school’s letters. This could easily be a special date, year, initials, etc.

Mark the spacing of where you want your lights to be inside the numbers or letters.

Line up your letters/numbers/symbols onto your poster board the way you want them spaced out.

Using your punch/pencil/screwdriver/etc poke holes where you marked on your letters.

It should look something like this when you move the paper away

Poke your lights though the back of the poster board through the holes. My daughter’s school colors are black and green which is why her poster board is black and the lights are green.

It will look something like this on the back. The lights should stay on their own, but if you are having trouble keeping them in just add a little drop of hot glue in the back to hold them in place.

On the front using thumb tacks or double sided tape, cover the front around the lights with photos to fit your theme.
My daughter likes to change out her photos annually so she opted for thumb tacks.
She displays it with a photo easel.
This is super adaptable for any celebration, or just to have in your home.
