Super Chuck's Merry Christmas Sign
This is another pretty easy "coroplast" project. Super Chuck made this Merry Christmas sign but you can easily make a sign that says anything you want! Chuck had a big, blank spot over his garage that he wanted to cover, sooooo, he made a Merry Christmas sign!!! Like the other coroplast projects, you mark your design on the back (make sure it's the back in case you have a preference for which side orientation you want to see in front). You mark holes about 1" apart. This is approximate because if you have a certain space you are working with you may have to shorten or lengthen, a little, the spacing for your lights. Then drill a hole that best matches one size drill bit down from the outside diameter of your light. For instance, my incandescent mini light is 1/4" in diameter and I drilled a 7/32" hole - nice and tight for my incandescent mini light. Super Chuck, on the other hand, had LED mini lights. His LED mini light diameter was 9/32" and he drilled a 1/4" diameter hole. Again, a nice, tight fit. The plastic of the coroplast really helps hold the light in place without the hassle of messy glue or weird clips. Gotta love coroplast! I wish I had a good picture of this sign in action. The green LED's were bright green and really lit the sign up!!! It was beautiful!!!!!
