Hello friends! I am sure many of you have seen the sweet little 4″ Mini Marquee Banners that are part of the brand new Heidi Swapp Christmas Lights collection now available at Michaels Stores! They are SO much fun to play with…and are truly the perfect decorative touch for your holiday decorating this year.
As most of you might guess, I love creating seasonal wreaths to display on my front door. When I saw these Mini 4″ Marquee that actually string together to create garlands and banners…my heart was bursting with creative bliss! Yes! How PERFECT for adding to wreaths since they all link together!
Let me show you just how easy it is to create a gorgeous festive holiday wreath…with the MAGIC of LIGHTS!
So to begin…I gathered my 4″ Marquee.
As you know, they come pure white in the package. I wanted to transform them easily and quickly using this gorgeous gold sparkly spray paint.
To spray them easily and with little mess, I placed my shapes into a cardboard box and sprayed them outside. I then allowed ample time for them to dry.
Once they were completely dry, I added my bulbs, light strands and then clipped them all together.
You can watch this super helpful intro video by Heidi on exactly how these mini marquee work here. I really recommend watching it as it is full of great tips and answers any questions you may just have.
OK…so now once I had my letters all strung together, I simply placed them onto my wreath and attached them using fishing line. This is truly the BEST way to adhere marquee I find because it is strong yet hardly visible. I simply tied fishing line on each of the exposed strands securing my banner into place.
I then played with the wreath branches, tucking pieces over top the white banner strand to conceal as much as I could.
Then once that was complete I added some decorative elements such as the gold and red berries as well as the snowflakes that I also purchased at Michaels and adhered with hot glue.

It is really hard to capture just how beautiful the lights look on camera, but trust me when it is all lit up, it is truly breathtaking.
I hope you enjoyed learning another quick and fun way to use these 4″ Mini Marquee Banners/Garlands in your holiday decor this year.
