Hi Friends! Today’s project was inspired by Lizzy, she recently bought a “Party of 3” sign from Hobby Lobby and I loved it and knew I wanted one for my home. So when I stumbled across this light up marquee number from Dollar Tree, I knew exactly what I was going to create with it, my very own “Party of 5” sign.
Let me walk you through how simple and easy this was to create. Let’s start with all the supplies you’ll need for this one.
- #5 Light up Marquee Sign from Dollar Tree
- Pallet Sign 14 x 12 inches from Hobby Lobby
- Black and white scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby
- Mod Podge
- Wood Bead Garland (Hobby Lobby Easter clearance)
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Paint brush x 2
- Paint, I used Debi’s Design Diary DIY Paint- Apothecary
- Waverly Antique Glaze
- “Water Girl” Misting bottle
- Sticker letters from Dollar Tree
- Sanding Sponge (Dollar Tree)
Now that we have everything we need, let’s get started.
- I started by smoothing off my pallet sign, it was a little rough and splintery. So I used my sanding sponge from Dollar Tree for this.
2. Now it’s time for some paint, I used one of favorites from Debi’s Design Diary, Apothecary. It’s a beautiful minty green shade. I also used my “lil dusty” paint brush from Paint Pixie, another one of my favorites.
2. I decided to antique my sign a little with some Waverly Antique Wax from Walmart. I brush it in around the edges and then spritz with water and wipe it down with a paper towel.
3. While I waited for my paint to dry on my pallet sign, I started preparing my #5. I traced out the number on my scrapbook paper. I chose the black and white plaid because it paired perfectly with the green I chose.
4. I cut out my traced number and I did end up having do a little extra trimming to make sure it fit just right. Once I got it just right, I added mod podge to the backside of my cutout and placed it on my number.
I originally planned on poking holes through and stringing the lights on the number. But after I added the paper, I chose to leave it just like that.
5. Now it’s time to add the letters from Dollar Tree. They were stickier than I thought, but I did add a thin layer of Mod Podge on top of the letters just to ensure they stay in place.
6. Now all that’s left is adding of number 5. I ended up using my hot glue gun and just hot glued all the way around the edges of the #5 and then just placed it on my sign and that was it.
