We recently spotted some damaged plastic marquee letters in Target, marked down to 70% off! We are all about recycling and upcycling in our household, as much as possible, so these letters were just the ticket to making fun, hipster marquee letter decor for my kids' rooms on a budget. Plus, when you upcycle, you can customize the project to your specific decor and likes. Up the feel good power of your project by using Energizer® EcoAdvanced™ batteries to power it! I think it's important for kids to learn about the environment but to also learn about and embrace technology. These light kits teach kids about putting things together but also how to be responsible in the ways we use power by choosing the world's first AA batteries made with 4% recycled batteries, Energizer® EcoAdvanced™. Whether you're powering a fun decor piece like these lights or your most critical devices, choose Energizer® EcoAdvanced™ to create less waste and have less impact on the planet.
Matthew chose an arrow and Katie chose an ampersand (&) and a hashtag (# or pound sign) from the available marquee letters. On our way out of the store, we stopped at the battery display in front of the registers and chose Energizer® EcoAdvanced™ in the AAA size to fit these particular lights.
Energizer® EcoAdvanced™ batteries are available in AAA and AA, perfect for all of your devices like flashlights, handheld games, and decor like these lights we made. Because Energizer® EcoAdvanced™ batteries are Energizer's longest lasting alkaline ever, we won't have to change out the batteries on these lights for a long time. We plan to use Matthew's arrow as a sort of night light in his room so it's a good thing that the batteries last a long time. I also have some battery powered Halloween candles that I have switched to Energizer® EcoAdvanced™ batteries and we also plan to use them in our Christmas village that Xaver sets up every year. And since Energizer® EcoAdvanced™ batteries last up to 12 years in storage, they are perfect for seasonal items in addition to every day use!
We created 3 versions of the marquee lights, using a combination of paint and washi tape. The easiest, no-mess version involves the washi tape, which is what we're sharing today. You can use stickers or washi tape to decorate these with kids – just don't let them use the craft knife – you'll need to help with that part of the project.
You'll need the following supplies to make these marquee lights:
- Energizer® EcoAdvanced™ batteries
- Plastic Marquee Lights
- Washi Tape
- Craft Knife
