Make This a How-To Holiday – Marquee Sign DIY Project

This post has been sponsored by my buddies over at Home Depot. All awesomeness is a collaboration between us….

So. The holidays are upon us. It seems so crazy – am I the only one who feels like 2014 only just started? I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by!

If you’re ready to get your home holiday-prepped – the Home Depot is you GO-TO spot. Seriously. I can spend all day there. I told ya’all about how we’re in the middle of a major home makeover – new floors, trim, paint, etc. So I love browsing the goodies in their aisles. Which is why I’m super excited about partnering with them to present a super awesome DIH Workshop!

Home Depot DIH Workshop Marquee Light Project

We’ll be showing you how to make a DIY Holiday Marquee sign – how cool is that, right? You can use this in so many ways – to spell out a holiday phrase, or like I’m going to use it – to spell out my 4 year old little girls name to hang up in her playroom. Super fun. And they’ll show you how to use some simple power tools, that you can try out yourself too, so you can have the know-how to conquer DIY projects anytime you want. We made a less fancy version of this very last minute last year, during football season…

It’s not the best photo, since it was at night, with my iPhone. But it was a labor of love, for our favorite PNW team – the Seahawks! :) I can’t wait to get started on making a really awesome sign during the Home Depot class, once I learn some simple skills to up my game.

  • The Home Depot can share the skills and confidence to be a first class do-it-yourselfer. In-store workshops are a great way to get step-by-step instructions and hands-on experience learning to do simple décor and easy home improvements.
  • Do-It-Herself (DIH) Workshops are held monthly at all The Home Depot store locations and empower women to take their home improvement project plans from dreams to done.
  • Clear your calendar and grab your girlfriends the third Thursday of each month for The Home Depot’s DIH Workshop. This interactive, hands-on workshop is a great opportunity to fine tune your DIY skills and pick up tips and advice from the pros for all of your home improvement projects.

The holiday DIH Workshop will take place at your local The Home Depot store on Thursday, November 20 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. Register online at And while you’re online, you can also check out the other workshops coming up – the Do It Yourself and super fun kids’ workshops – they’re all totally free!

If you’re local here around the Yakima area – I totally hope you’ll join me! Everyone who attends and tweets during the event has a chance to win a prize – Best Buy gift cards!

Leave me a comment below if you’ll be there – or let me know if you’re planning to go to your own local workshop. I love hearing from you guys!

      It should be a ton of fun!!! I love these workshops – and I definitely LOVE me some Home Depot!! I could spend hours there…. <3

  2. I was thinking how cool it would be to have it in a kid’s room, so your idea sounds great. It would be nice for a special occasion/holiday, too!
