Part Marquee + Part Letter Board = 100% InstaFabulous
Well, hello there! Today I’m sharing a tutorial for my latest project: a DIY Letter Board.

I’d been wanting to take on a fun project, and was initially inspired by the marquee signs that are all over Instagram these days. Totally cute, but just not something I can envision in my home as a permanent fixture. I’ve also been crushing on all the beautiful felt letter boards out there, but they are out of my price range.
So as usual, I improvised.
I started with leftover particle board from Dub’s engineer prints project.
Then, I bought some strips of Balsa wood from the craft store. I bought two sizes: 3/8″ wide, and then a much smaller square strip.
I cut them to size to fit the width of the board, then glued them together like this.
I used wood glue to attach them to the board evenly spaced.
The result? If the marquee and letter board had a baby, this is what I think it would look like.
Word to your mother.
What do you think of my DIY Letter Board? What would your letter board say?
