This was a class we had at the beginning of February here in town. We all had such a great time.
XOXO Valentine Marquee
You will love this lit up marquee sign for your Valentine or everyday home decor. It uses a strand of 50 lights and shines so pretty. The photos do not do it justice.
We started with lath boards and created a “pallet like” board that measures 15 x 20. The one in the final pictures is our sample for the class but our final design for the sign ended up with some sides to act as a frame for the boards and to help hide the cords for the lights.
Then we stained the boards using a dark walnut stain.
I cut the letters from my Silhouette Cameo and traced the design onto the stained board using chalk.
Then I used acrylic paints to paint in the letters and the arrows.
After it was painted I marked holes for the lights and Jeff drilled them for me and I used a sanding block to distress the whole thing.
This photo is from a different project but it was the same idea. We worked from the back of the piece and placed the lights into the drilled holes.
The result is a fun marquee sign without the huge expense. Everyone LOVED the sign they made in class!
I hope you loved it too. Have a great day!
