DIY Explore Marquee Sign

I was asked to cut out a word for a little boy’s room for one of this years Parade Homes and have lights strung through out it. Explore was the word that was decided on to fit in with the theme of the room.
I set my piece of plywood up against the wall, projected my word on it and traced it out with a pencil.

After I finished tracing, I moved the plywood up onto my sawhorses and began to cut with the jigsaw.
I marked off each hole by stringing out the lights, making sure not to pull too tight.
I drilled all the holes, then sanded down the entire word.
Next, spray down the entire word in the color that we match with the curtain panels.
String the lights through the backside and attach to the wall.
I am in love with this space!

    Love it! What a cute space. The word is the perfect finishing would look great with maps and all sorts of things too. Off to check out your blog post.

    This is so original - I love the outdoor theme! I actually checked if you were Canadian... but I was off by a long long way! ;-)
