DIY Marquee Light Cake — The combination of the sequin heart and small led lights make this DIY Marquee Light Cake (that actually lights up) a true showstopper!
I, Lindsay have always been obsessed with sequins. There is just something about them that makes me happy.
When I stumbled upon Ashley’s DIY Sequin Marquee Heart, I obviously fell in love. So I decided to do the next best thing — make it into a DIY Marquee Light Cake!
I had so much fun making this! I will admit, waiting for the sequin heart to dry does take a little patience (which I don’t have very much of), but it was so worth it in the end.
