How to Make a DIY Lighted Marquee Sign

Back around Christmas of last year, Gina from The Shabby Creek Cottage picked up some globe string lights from us to add a unique lighting element to her kitchen.  She liked them so much she decided to use more to create a DIY Lighted Marquee Sign for her daughter's house.

Items you'll need:

  • Globe String Lights (Gina used one 12-foot strand and one 25-foot strand)
  • Chalk Markers (optional, to help mark lights)
  • Hollow core door
  • Paint



What makes this project so cool is that it is also perfect for the DIY wedding planner or event planner.

The steps are fairly simple; see a few photos from the how-to below, and get the full step-by-step tutorial on The Shabby Creek Cottage.
