Step 1: Get Ready
You will need:
Small disposable plastic cups
Bright green spray paint
String lights with bulbs
Step 2: Paint
Use the spray paint to paint all the outside surface of your cups. I used 11 cups but you can use more or less depending on what you want to write on them.
Step 3: Make Holes
Heat up the tip of your knife and put it on top of your cups to make a hole big enough to make the little light pass through it.
Step 4: Write
It's time to draw your letters! I love this part because it makes the lighted up banner very unique! My cups say
Try to make your letters the same size and style so you can have a nice looking banner.
Step 5: Lights
Introduce your light through the hole we made and put the little plastic bulb on it. This makes it super easy because it holds the light in place and it makes the light look very cool.
Step 6: Ready!
Hang your light string with some masking tape or with nails and surprise someone in their special day!
