Make a bold statement in your home with marquee letters, says Sarah Withell.
Typography prints and decorative letters are still trending and aren’t showing any signs of going away soon. The latest take on this craze is marquee letters. Basically, these are large 3D letters that contain string lights, giving you a cool neon-sign effect in your own home. Marquee letters can be bought ready-made in all sorts of materials, shapes and symbols but can be expensive. I decided to give them a go myself and show you how easy it can be to make your own, personalised light-up letters. Even better than one letter or symbol alone, I tackled a whole word. The hardest part is choosing one.

Store-bought marquee letters often need to be plugged in to a power supply, making placement in the home a bit more limited. Battery-powered string lights eliminate this problem, meaning you can move your sign around easily.
