How to use marquee lights for Mother's Day.

Mother’s Day is this weekend – put that special lady’s name in lights! Why stop there? Decorate an entire tree in her honor. I did.


My Mother’s Day tree started with some Marquee Love letters from Heidi Swapp and a Pretty in Pink Potted Christmas Tree.

I love the way black and white pops off the pink tree. I used scrapbooking paper and a paper punch for the circles. The polka dotted garland is from the party aisle at the craft store.


The marquee letters are easily customizable with paint, paper, washi tape, and more. I wanted mine to be black and white to match the tree.


Say it loud, say it proud, say “I love all the moms in my life!” with a fun tree.
