These light-up letters/symbols look great and are so simple to make. It took me about 20 minutes from start to end and cost around £12. You could use these letters at your wedding and then use them as a decor piece in your home as a keep sake. But you don’t need to be getting married to have one of these in your home – it could simply add a personal touch to a living room or bedroom.
Other than the fairy lights, all materials used can be purchased from hobbycraft. I raided my Christmas decoration collection for the fairy lights but they can be purchased all year round from most homeware shops such as the range or wilkos.
Watch the video tutorial or read my step-by-step instructions below
Step 1. Using the glue gun, glue the battery pack from the fairy lights to the back of the letter or symbol and thread the wire through the centre hole or round its side. Before gluing the battery pack down, make sure you’re still able to replace the batteries- it’s surprising how easy it is to glue it back to front!
Step 2. Apply glue to the inside edges of the letter or symbol and place the reindeer moss over it. Be careful, don’t burn your fingers!
Step 3. Cut the heads off the flowers with any leaves you’d like to add. Tip – Go for smaller flowers. If they’re too large they take up too much room within the letter.
Step 4. Glue the flower heads in place. When deciding where to place the flowers, you may want to switch the lights on. It will help you picture what the final thing will look like.
And here you have it! I hope you enjoyed my tutorial. Give it a go and let me know how you get on.
