alibc:  I used 24″ paper mache letters and just cut off the front face with an exacto knife then positioned the lightbubls sprayed the back and sides gold and then painted the inside red and then modge podged glitter. I used two sets of cafe lights so there’s 9 on either side to hang it.

After my wedding I can try to do a tutorial.

geneva2:  Do you mean the lettering? I have a die-cutting machine and I cut the design from vinyl. 

Here’s the blog that has the original DIY, if you’re interested ๐Ÿ™‚
