I love to have fun decor in my home and when it lights up that is even better. This XOXO Valentine Marquee sign is so fun and brightens my Valentine decor!
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!

Michelle I'm a little worried about the weather for Tuesday night for the painting party. Is there any chance that you may cancel and reschedule it if we can't make it down to Emmetsburg from Terril or could we come Thursday, the 4th? Please just send me a email back as Jeri Nissen and I are both signed up to come. I will be disappointed if we miss it. Darn weather even if it is winter in Iowa.

Hi Charleen! Thanks for the comment. I was going to send out an email today to all Tues sign ups. I will still hold the class tonight. Since you and Jeri are out of town you can surely come Thursday if it works for you. I really do not want anyone to miss the class. Please let me know what you decide. You can email me at [email protected]

Hi Jeri. I emailed you yesterday but thought I would reply to your comment as well. It shows as a pending transaction. Did you follow the checkout process all the way through? I mentioned in the email that you can send a check if this process isn't working for you. So sorry for the troubles.

Hi Hilary! Are you serious? If so I could see how much it would be to ship one. Then you could just pay the class fee and the shipping rate. I will message you on Facebook so we can "talk". LOL! I am so glad you like it.
