Marquees are very popular for décor, they are eye-catching and raise the mood. To make this one you’ll need 3/4″ wooden board big enough to trace your desired size onto, a jigsaw, a drill, a hole saw drill bit large enough to fit your string lights, 6″ wide roof flashing, metal cutting shears, a staple gun, gold and white paint, globe string lights, extension cord, epoxy glue that works for wood and metal and leather working gloves. First, decide what phrase and font you want to use and trace the phrase onto a wooden board at the appropriate size. Use a transparency sheet and a projector to do so, but you can also freehand draw it or print the phrase on an inexpensive blueprint print and trace it from that onto the wood.
