Step 1

Paint a wood sign with crafts paint. Let dry. Tape off a stripe with delicate-surface painter’s tape and paint it a different color. Remove the tape while the paint is still wet. Let dry.

Step 2

Use Velcro tape to attach battery-powered marquee letters to the sign. That way they’re easily removable for turning on and off.

Step 3

Hang with Command strips.
