I wanted something lit up and simple, so I came up with the idea for a backlit sign. Backlit signs are simple, you can find a ton everywhere. However, I needed to make one quickly and with materials on hand, so I figured out how to do this. Here we go. Did you use this instructable in your classroom? Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
It's also more susceptible to water damage. Painted, that shouldn't matter. I think I used 1x3 cheap stuff from home depot. I used paper out of desperation, but something more durable would be nice here. These are hot 20w halogens, so they're not ideal for an enclosed box like this.
Tools: -Drill. First, you need a template. Go to Libreoffice Writer and write out your phrase here. Pick a simple, thick font. You want light to shine through.
Make this big, spanning the entire width of your sign about 4 feet for me. You'll figure it out. Now that you've gotten your printout, cut it out with a sharp blade. Here's the detail work. For a quick shortcut, tape the template down and lightly spray paint over it. Either way, you just want to be able to see your text on the wood so you can cut it out.
Now drill a hole on the inside of each disconnected letter.Have you ever worked on a project with LED lights? Should you make a purchase from one of these links, I will earn a small commission at no extra cost to you. You can upload your own artwork into the Easel program from Inventables, or you can use this custom artwork I created. The free Easel program from Inventables is simple to use. I used this function when carving out the American flag design on this project.
It saves A LOT of time over carving the whole thing with the 60 degree bit. I used select pine for this panel as there are no knots in it and it provides a very clean carving area. Once the glue was dry, I sanded the panel down. You can either use an orbital sander or a combination of orbital sander and drum sander to get your panel smoothed out.
Once the panel was prepped, I spray painted it black. I sprayed several coats going side to side and also up and down to ensure even and full coverage over the panel. Next up it was time to carve. This takes out a good portion of the material quickly and saves some time.
Once the roughing pass was completed, I carefully swapped out the bits so as not to move the spindle at all, then installed my 60 degree V bit. I started up the detail pass and it cleaned up all of the stars and stripes in the design. When the detail pass was completed, I moved on to carving the design out from the panel. In my project within Easel, this is a second window. The design in that window is set up so that it will carve exactly where it needs to.
Moving the design will cause it to carve off center of the rest of the project and essentially ruin all of your work.
Once the project was finished, I grabbed my Dremel to clean up the edges of the project as well as clean up the parts of the tabs left over from the carve. I sanded the panel down, then stained it and let it dry. I ordered battery powered LED lights for this project and needed to router a pocket into the back panel for the battery pack to sit. This allows the finished wall art to sit closer against the wall.
With everything secured in place on the back, I fed the LED light strip through to the front of the panel. I peeled the adhesive backing off of the light strip and began sticking it to the back of the carved project.
I maneuvered the light strip around until it covered the perimeter of the carving. One part I had to backtrack the lights, but it all worked out okay. You can also glue it down, but I wanted it to be removable in case I decided to change out the lights later.
The carved artwork needs to be set on the back with spacers. I centered the artwork over the back panel and then positioned the nuts behind it where they would elevate the art but not interfere with the lights.
I drilled a pilot hole through the wood in the center of each of the nuts. I used CA glue and activator spray to glue the nuts down to the backer board. The activator spray causes the CA glue to dry instantly. There are a few things I should note about the lights. For starters, I am sure there are better lights I could have used for this. If you know of better lights, definitely let me know! The battery powered lights are awesome, but in order for the remote to work the lights, you have to pull the artwork slightly off the wall at the bottom and aim the remote at the battery pack.
Not a huge deal.It is so stinkin' cute! Thank you so much for sharing! I feel a little ignorant but I didn't understand step 2 at all. I've never heard of the vinyl lettering. What is that all about and how would I do it?
Thank you so much! Vinyl lettering is cut using a Cricut or Silhouette machine and it's basically a big sticker that you can put onto any craft surface. Recipe Rating. Home About Me Contact Legal.

Backlit LED Lightbox Sign
My husband made my sign for me, but you could easily buy one. They carry several different styles in the craft aisle at any craft store. I bought the battery operated lights in the Christmas section at Walmart, but after making this sign, I realized I should have bought a shorter strand… lights was way too many for one sign! Next time I go to Walmart, I plan to buy another set of lights and do a little swappety-swap.
Also, a safety note: this project requires LED lights to reduce the risk of overheating which could cause a fire.DIY Backlit Sign! - Nerdy Crafts Ep. 44
Only use cool LED lights please! Step 1: Paint or stain the background of your sign if desired. The wood on my sign was particularly pretty, so I left it raw. Step 2: Download the free PNG design using the link in the materials list.My husbands man cave has been needing a nice backlit sign for a good while now.
In an effort to avoid the typical bar room neon look, I decided to build him a custom sign with full color LED strips that are fully adjustable on a color wheel, directly from his cell phone. So when the subject of picking the text of the sign came up, we pretty well knew which way we would go. This is a great scrap wood project.
I was able to complete this build using only wood left over from previous projects. To make the stencil, I went to a local FedEx with a text file on a thumb drive and had them print off my sign.
I had it printed off at the size I wanted my sign, brought it home, and then taped it down to my dining room table. I used boxing tape to tape over the lettering which gives it some rigidity whenever you are using it as an actual stencil. Using an X-Acto knife, I cut out all of the lettering, making sure not to lose the inside pieces of the letters because they will be needed later.
Make sure you place a board underneath the printout before cutting so you do not scratch your tabletop! I purchased my piece of plexiglass from the big-box store and chose a size that was slightly larger than the size I needed so that I could cut it to the exact size I wanted it. To cut the Plexiglas I used my table saw, making sure to use painters tape on the cutline to reduce the tear-out on the backside as best as possible.
Note: It is way cheaper to order the plexiglass offline! I then placed the stencil on the top of my plexiglass and used a sharpie to trace out the lettering. However, if I were redoing this project I would actually change up this part just a bit. By etching on the front surface you can touch the etched lettering at the end of the project. So instead I recommend tracing the lettering on the front but then flipping the plexiglass over and etching on the back. I first used a small fine bit to outline the letters then came back with a larger bit to fill them in both bits are linked above.
I set that aside and started working on making a back. When I went to cut them to the lengths I originally needed, I realized I was short by one piece. To work around this, I took all of the pieces to the miter saw and cut them into random lengths. Note: You can make your pieces go horizontal, diagonal, or vertical.
DIY Backlit Sign! | Nerdy Crafts!
Whatever you like best! I wanted a random pattern for the back so I first dry fitted the pattern to make sure I was going to be happy with it before permanently placing them.
I played around with the placement of all the pieces until I was satisfied with their arrangement. I laid down glue and then started attaching them permanently. I would lineup the pieces with the right edge and let it overhang on the left edge. Then I added some weight and let it dry. While that was drying I looked around my shop to see what I had on hand to start making the frame.
I found a couple of suitable pieces on the lumber rack, cut them to length, and then moved to the table saw to cut in some dados.
I made a dado on the front of the frame for the LED strips and the plexiglass to go into and then cut a rabbit on the back for the back to rest in. To make this go quicker I exchanged my table saw blade for my dado stack.
However if you do not own a dado stack, just make multiple passes with your table saw blade. Miter joints are not very strong so to reinforce these joints I am using a biscuit joiner to cut a biscuit slot on each mitered edge. If you do not have a biscuit joiner then a good alternative is a pocket hole jig. I need the top left off so that I can later slide in the plexiglass material.HGTV Magazine: For this marquee-inspired sign for her 4-year-old daughter's bedroom, mom Mandi Gruber drew a letter d on a 2-foot-byfoot piece of plywood and used a jigsaw to cut it out.
A lumberyard that has a jigsaw can cut it for you if you draw the shape. Then she drilled holes for the lights. To make the d three-dimensional, she stapled flexible MDF around the outline. The bulbs inserted in the holes are a string of globe lights from Target.
Photo by: David A. Big wall decor is usually one of two things—super expensive or a snooze-fest. But not this giant marquee letter sign. Marquee letters are quite the rage right now. Most of the DIY versions are made from chipboard 3D letters from the craft store.
Those are great, but what if you want something larger and more amazing than your standard 18 inches? Read on for a step-by-step to create this fun DIY! Choose your letter and your font. You have two options at this point. If you are comfortable freehand drawing the font design, do it. If you want something to trace you can have your local printer print out a full size version of the image. Photo by: Mandi Gubler, vintagerevivals. After you transfer the letter image to your plywood, cut it out with a jigsaw.
Mandi Gubler, vintagerevivals. Photo By: Mandi Gubler, vintagerevivals. Put something underneath the letter to elevate it off the ground. Spray paint caps were used in this example, but you could use anything that offers a stable surface. Measure the distance between each light bulb on your sting. Go back over the edges of your letter with a piece of sandpaper to smooth it out and get rid of any leftover guide marks.
Be careful not to sand too heavily, as that can erase the wood grain. Lay the pieces of MDF side by side and paint one side using a roller that is designed for a smooth finish. Let dry. Again, put something underneath the letter to elevate it off the ground a few inches. Make sure the letter is facing down.
Measure the distance from the ground to the middle of your plywood. Mark this distance on the unpainted side of your MDF. This is your staple line, or seam.
