Monogram Lit up Sign DIY

Letters, Numbers & Symbols are hot in Home Décor right now. Create your own master piece using 10 simple steps!

  • Unfinished 12"x12" wood hollow board (Don-95)
  • 10 count string lights
  • Montana Gold red acrylic spray paint
  • Tim Holtz Distressed vintage stain
  • Drill bit 13/16"
  • Glue Gun
  • Tape
  • Heavy card stock paper or stencil sheet.
  • Wood letter to trace
  1. Start by creating your letter stencil (we used a wood letter and traced it to our stencil plastic sheet) 
  2. Cut out your stencil. you can use the inner stencil or the outer stencil.
  3. Decide where you want your lights to go on the board using the stencil as a guide and mark 10 locations.
  4. Drill 10 holes into your board.
  5. Then stain your board using Tim Holtz Distressed Ink. Let dry.
  6. Lay stencil on your board and tape underneath stencil to hold in place.
  7. Spray paint your letter on to your board. Let dry.
  8. Take light bulbs out of your sign and place them in the holes of the board.
  9. Glue the backside of the board with your glue gun to hold the light socket in place. Hold for about a minute to allow the glue to dry. Tip: if you have a mini fan this would speed up the process of the glue drying.
  10. Once all your light sockets are secure put lights back into socket and plug in!
