Can You DIY The Marquee Alphabet Lights From Urban Outfitters?

Mark Your Territory With Marquee Alphabet Lights

I really do love the vintage alphabet blocks I found last year, which would go perfectly in a little geek-in-training nursery. But since I'm not planning to add to my family anytime soon, I wanted to find a more grown-up, flashier alternative for my apartment. So when I stumbled upon these letters, I realized the missing component was — lights!

Now I'm totally craving these Marquee Alphabet Lights. The only downside? They are $178 dollars each! But after a little thought, I figure these alphabet letters wouldn't be too hard to DIY with a little planning and elbow grease. See how I would do it myself when you

There are a ton of vintage tin alphabet letters available for much cheaper on sites like Etsy and eBay, so why not pick up a full set for the amount of one letter from Urban Outfitters? Then, all you have to do is drill a few holes with a drill bit, and fashion it with some white Christmas or decorative lights, and voila! You're good to go to hang it on your wall, or post up your letters on your mantel.
