DIY Christmas mini marquee sign

Lighting is amazing. It can totally transform a space in seconds, and getting your lighting right is , in my opinion, the most important thing you can for your home.

That said, I am a sucker for a good lighting DIY, so when the lovely people at approached me to see if I would like to create a Christmas craft tutorial for them (and I was like "hell yes!") it took about 0.00003 of a second for me to decide that this was what I would do. 

I've made one of these before and I love it so much that I really wanted a Christmas-specific one, plus I didn't do a proper tutorial first time round so this gave me the opportunity to remedy that.

The tutorial is live over on the wayfair site now, so if you want to find out to make this really cheap, easy and effective little sign then click the link and head on over ;)

Disclaimer: I was given some items from the wayfair website free of charge in return for providing this tutorial but all opinions are, as always, totally my own. I only work with companies I really love and I think you will love too! Thank you for supporting the companies that support Make Do and DIY.


  1. Ohhhhh this is AMAZING LINDA! This is such a perfect DIY for not only Christmas, but all year long! It's so sweet and I'm amazed at how straight forward you made it. I would have been sweating trying to figure out how to make a marquee :P

    So beautiful. Can't wait to see more of your Christmas decor! And of course, I hope Prague with two little angels in toe went down a treat! :P

    1. Aww thanks :) I'm hoping to get some pics of the rest of my Christmas getup on here in the next couple of days but honestly I don't know if it will ever be clean enough for the half an hour I would need to make that happen *sigh*. Maybe I'll just do it as is, pics of a messy house could be arty right? I mean, if it's good enough for Tracy Emin...

      As for Prague, the monsters were NOT invited! :) Our fantastic parents divvied them up between them for the few days to let us remember what it's actually like to walk around at human speed and consume hot food, bliss! I maintained an almost permanent slight mulled wine buzz and saw some of the most beautiful architecture and interiors I've ever come across. It was awesome ;)
