I decided to change up our mantel this Christmas after finding this marquee sign on Pinterest. I was determined to create my own. Then I realized it’s a little more than I wanted to take on. I’m more of a DSYer (Do SOME Yourself) than a DIYer. Yes, I’m coining a new phrase. I think it describes my abilities perfectly. So I set out to find something I could put together to get the light-up effect I wanted without starting from scratch. Here are my steps for creating your own Light Up Christmas Sign.
