With Hanukkah just around the corner, I wanted to create a festive DIY project to add some fun to your outdoor holiday decorations. Several years ago I had admired an “over-the-top” Hanukkah decorated home in Palm Springs, and tucked away the idea of making a HANUKKAH CANDLELIGHT YARD SIGN.
While the lovely sign I admired was store-bought, I’m always saying to myself, “I can make that!”. Are you that kind of person too?
So I set out to create my very own Hanukkah Candlelight Yard Sign that would give a festive glow outside my home. I’ll show you how to make your own yard sign with step-by-step pics and instructions.
I’ve also included a resource section to help you assemble all the supplies you’ll need to make your own yard sign.
And if you’ve been wondering how you’ll get all your holiday tasks and planning done, I’ll tell you all about the 2021 HANUKKAH HOLIDAY PLANNER that’s come to be a holiday-must-have for my 8 Nights of Hanukkah Celebrations.
First, let’s look at what supplies you’ll need to make your yard sign.
HANUKKAH CANDLELIGHT YARD SIGN PROJECT SUPPLIES –
Check out the RESOURCE SECTION, order what you need and then let’s get started making your Hanukkah Candlelight Yard Sign.
Okay, now that you have your project supplies tackled, first things first. Head to the IFAFL Subscriber’s Resource Library to download your own copy of the Hanukkah Yard Sign PDF.
NAN’S TIP: I printed out a black and white copy of the signs to be used as the stencils for my backer boards. I didn’t want to damage or write on any of my color signage!
This is where making a black and white version of the cutouts really pays off. You’ll use the black and white menorah to align and make the holes into the foam board.
The process will make the holes messy, so it’s best to not use your final color menorah for this part of the project.
When you’re installing the lights, it’s easier if you raise the yard sign off the work surface.
I placed a second yard sign stake under my painted one to lift it further off the table. Then I put the menorah, face down on the stake in the position it will be in when finished.
This allowed me to see where the battery box would be positioned. Speaking of which, don’t forget to put the batteries into the power box before it’s attached to the menorah’s back side!
Place your finished Hanukkah Candlelight Yard Sign in a prominent place outside your home.
Come sundown, click on the lights, and let your Hanukkah holiday spirit shine brightly!
