Marquees! They are becoming a staple in home décor, and I have been wanting to find one for Rordan's room, or play area for months now. Most of the time, I find that they cost a pretty penny. I have considered making one, but at times, when I take on a "simple" DIY project, I find that I make it a bit complicated so I have opted out of that. I figured I'd find one at Home Goods one day, so I've been patient, but have had no luck so far. Well, I was running an errand at Target today, and as always, perused the home décor section. How can you not? They have great finds, and great sales! Well, I was down to two aisles, and wouldn't you know it, I came across a display of marquees! They had a few choices, being an "@", "?", and an "--->". Of course, I loves arrows as you can see from my logo, so I had to get it. It comes in two colors, teal, and white. I am loving teal at the moment, but I wanted something I could put a spin on, and add some color to, so I went with the white. The following isn't a tutorial really, because honestly it required only three steps to complete, but I'll add the materials I used. I figured that since I have wanted to use Washi Tape for a while now, I could come up with some sort of design for this arrow. The only materials I needed were the Room Essentials Marquee, 3M Scotch Brand Washi Tape, I chose orange, and a knife.
And here it is!
And that's it! Very simple, but with a very fun result, and it costs less than $20 to complete! I can't wait to hang this on the wall, once I get the wall painted. Soon, very soon, I hope! I'll be sure to add pictures of that to the blog when I'm done.
