How to Make Your Own Marquee Bowling Sign by Jenny Dixon


A note from Shindigz: Earlier this week, we debuted Jen's adorable Bowling Lanes Party for her son's birthday. As promised, here is a follow-up post instructions for making your own marquee bowling sign.

FHere are the instructions from Jen:

I created this DIY Marquee STRIKE sign for above the dessert table by using 12" x 1" styrofoam letters. It was a great way to add a "wow" factor to the dessert table without spending a lot of money.

Materials Needed:

Water base acrylic black paint, foam paint brush, 1" circle punch, white paper, Glue stick, hot glue gun, large piece of cardboard, and red spray paint.

#1 Backgrounds and Large Props

Backgrounds are a crucial part of any photo booth, so here are some tips and inspiration for making yours stand out.

1. Paint styrofoam letters black with foam brush. Let dry completely.

2. Punch out white circles using a 1" circle punch and use glue stick to attach circles to letters.

3. Cut cardboard to desired shape and size. Spray paint red in a well ventilated area and allow to dry completely.

4. Attach styrofoam letters to cardboard with a hot glue gun.
