This was a super fun project to do with my
11 year old scout in just a few hours!
Do-it-yourself Marquee sign!
Nothing quite as awesome as a vintage style arrow in comic book red!
I wanted to do a marquee sign for a long time...
but didn't want a sign I had to plug in...find wall space for...
or deal with cords and plugs.
Then I discovered Solar Power lights! Yay!
You could use Christmas lights...or other string lights.
We started with a scrap piece of plywood we found on the street.
It was about a foot and a half tall and 4 feet wide...
I used some kraft paper and cut it to fit the board...
I cut it while it was folded so it would be symmetrical!
so we switched and cut it with the tablesaw!
(note: jigsaw is now on my list)
(yes, one of our lights is hidden...so the solar panel would sit above the sign)
But our porch is small and ugly, so it's going on the back fence!
Pretty good for an 11 year old scout project!
Linking up to THESE parties this week!
