She started by cutting and whitewashing her boards.

She printed out a fun, holiday message and transferred it to her sign. You can catch her cool technique in the video above!

Channing had a marquee look in mind, so after sticking block letters onto her sign to complete her message, she measured where her lights would pop through.

        i viewed video on my phone also and it worked (with a short different commercial in between) for me. I just didn't tap on arrow, waited like 2-3 seconds and video continued. Maybe that will work for you. Good luck. 🎄

      Terrific idea, especially if you're without the old stand by, a Fireplace......I think it is really pretty and I hope Santa fills them stockings with Holiday love and joy!!
