DIY Rudolph Marquee Sign

2 Materials
3 Hours

Clear ornaments don't seem very exciting but with a little imagination and a few supplies they can go form ordinary to extraordinary. I used a few boxes to create a really cool marquee sign!

I just painted on my letters and decided where I wanted my bulbs to go.

After drilling my holes out with the biggest drill bit in my set, I threaded a string of white Christmas lights into each hole and taped everything in place with duct tape.

I hot glued on the clear ornament bulbs and replaced the white lights in the 'O' with red. You know, Rudolph's nose and all.

After the glue dried, I set my sign up outside and plugged it in.

Suggested materials:
  • Wood
  • Clear ornament bulbs

    I agree with Trish Davenport, not only is this a terrific project and looks GREAT, but it also is a wonderful inspiration for similar projects.
