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!
