Library Display: Reading Makes You Bright

'Tis the season for lights, yes? And all things bright and happy. So I made sure December's book display is festive...

Yes, a minature marquee sign that I am ridiculously proud of. Here's a close-up:

And even closer...

After No-Shave November's success, I knew I had to step up my game.

First of all—glitter everywhere, but I survived. To anyone who wants to recreate this for themselves: glitter paper would work better. My library had a lot (A LOT) of glitter on hand, so I decided to make my own glitter paper. It worked, but it just... well, glittered. Moving on...

For a brief how-to: I used foam core. So I cut the letters out, arrange them on a foam core board, and marked where I wanted lights. I hole punched the letters, and stabbed the foam core with a screw driver (I use what I have available, okay?) and poked the lights through. It probably took me around three hours. Glue and tape works wonders. For a really detailed how-to, you can use the website I found that was my inspiration: A Beautiful Mess.

The lights are only on during the day, so no worries about burning up. It's a definite eye-catcher, so I highly recommend it.
