O Holy Night

I've been working on a few things for Christmas time. This is something I made after buying a battery powered string of lights and wanting to use it on some type of wall d├ęcor.

I glued three pieces of old grey wood together side-by-side and cut out a star with my jigsaw. The wording was hand painted and then I used hot glue to attach the tiny LED lights on the back. Two cross pieces at the top and bottom of the back help to bring the wood away from the wall to give room for the light to shine, and also space to hold the battery pack.

 It really looks better in my person, especially in a dark room, but hopefully you get the idea.

  1. This is so pretty, and I love that the star lights up, instead of painted on.
