Print out the letters on colored paper and cut them out.

Cut a strip of 5 cm. These strips will be the sides of the letters. Glue them one by one to the letter – so you cannot go wrong with the number and length of the strip. You may want to paint the letters and a spray paint will do the trick nice and easily.

Using a pencil, mark the place where the lights will be located and pierce holes. Do not make the holes too big, because the bulb will fall out. Tuck in any excess cord inside. Glue the back side of the letters and wait for the glue to dry.
