It's the second Wednesday of the month and that means it's time for another Monthly DIY Challenge!
Each month a group of my favorite blogging friends and I challenge each other to create something using an agreed upon theme or object. This months challenge was to use clear ornaments and (gasp!) I didn't make something Christmassy. I forced myself out of my comfort zone to create something I've never done before, a wood marquee.
Here's what you'll need:
- Clear ornaments (I got mine at Michaels when they were half off and used a 20% off your total purchase coupon, score!)
- 2x4 sheet of 1/2 plywood
- Tools (Jig saw, straight edge, tape measure, 1/2 spade drill bit, drill, sand paper)
- Stain (I used minwax Jacobean)
- Christmas lights
This project was pretty straight forward, so I'll let the pictures do most of the talking.
After I marked the placement of my lights, I drilled holes into the plywood using a 1/2 spade drill. This was the perfect size and allowed the tip of the ornament to fit fairly snug into the hole.D ring picture hook to one of the scrap pieces to hang the arrow on the wall.
I hung the light on the wall next to the bar in our basement and love how it looks.
