Christmas Light Up Marquee DIY. Hey everyone, it's Laura!

Christmas Light Up Marquee DIY

There are a lot of things to love about the holiday season (like time with family and friends or delicious food), but one of my favorite things about Christmas is the decor. I love the glittery silver and gold and the soft glow of candles and Christmas lights, so this year I was inspired by Elsie and Emma's guest room light up headboard to put all of my favorite decor aspects into one holiday project: a light up marquee sign!

Supplies: You'll need a large wood board (50 x 24 inches), 4 wood planks (2 x 1 inches), wood screws, drill, indoor christmas lights, white acrylic paint, loose gold glitter, Mod Podge, chipboard letters, glue, duct tape. First you'll want to cut your wood planks into four pieces and use them to frame the outside edge on the back side of your marquee. This will help hide the Christmas light's wires and make the sign appear more finished when viewed from the side. Gadgets for your Home.

Featured Member Crochet: November 2 - Starting Chain

Here are a few works of crochet that have been recently shared with our community at Starting Chain. We hope they inspire! We love, of course, the heirloom patterns that have brought beauty for generations. Many of us had grandmothers who crocheted and either knew their pattern by heart or just jotted it down on scrap paper and in pencil. We love this one by Carla Parris. Carla also writes that she used a size 10 thread (the pattern called for size 20) and she did it in antique white/ecru to get the vintage look...which we love.
