This week I want to take a moment to tell you about my new favorite decorating obsession – marquees. They are really trendy right now and probably just a fad, but I love them – especially because our family room has movie themed decorations. (This is a throwback to the olden days when I actually had time to see movies and could make intelligent, informed, and often accurate predictions about who would win the Oscars. In contrast to my present reality in which the Lego Movie was the last movie I saw in the theater – and it was fantastic by the way! I hope to see another movie someday… until that time I will happily settle for making movie related crafts and decorations.) Obviously, the current marquee craze is perfectly timed for my decorating needs. Thank you to whomever decided marquees were cool in the first place! Better yet, I found a great line of “DIY” marquee letters and shapes at Michael’s. They are called “Marquee Love” by Heidi Swapp. I have also seen them on Amazon and Jo-Ann’s. You can decorate them yourself. I made a B and a star for our movie family room.
So I was super excited to find a ghost marquee at Michaels a few weeks before October.
I was then even more thrilled when I saw a pumpkin shape on Amazon.
Better yet – the ghost was already white, and the pumpkin was already sparkly orange, so I didn’t even need to do anything to decorate them (although you could if you wanted).
I love getting to keep the marquee look in our movie family room while still being able to update things for Halloween. Stay tuned for more marquees coming up for future holidays…
