Made an LED sign for my older son to hang on his wall. Total cost in materials…about $6.
Could easily sell for $30 or more.
Cut from 3mm MDF
Installed LED wire through hole in side.
Used hot glue to secure LED strip in place
Glued piece of red acrylic on top of LEDs to make the sign red. (or use red LEDs)
Put the sides on…no glue needed as it fits nice and tight.
Shot of inside guts.
Check to make sure it lights up red😜
Glued the piece that came out of the top slot to keep the insert straight (next time I will add an additional middle layer that fits in the middle of the box horizontally with a slot for a better guide for the sign insert to stay straight)
Shot of the back with the wall mount holes.
Painted the base and inserted sign.
All lit up. His last name is Morgan and in JROTC, he was a Capt. so technically its his rank and name…
Even made a guide for his wall screws.
