Add String Lights

Start with the light bulb closest to the battery compartment and stick it through the hole closest to the bottom-edge of the letter. Continue, pushing one light through each hole, until all holes are filled. Using electrical tape, attach battery back to the back of the letter. Tip: The back of the letter will look a little crazy, but don't worry — it won’t be visible.

Display and Enjoy

Display the finished project on a shelf or table full of fun accessories. This whimsical piece is perfect for a child’s room or nursery.
