I wanted a sign I could have up year round that wouldn't get me into trouble with the SO.

As a mod my sign is not in the running but what the heck?





The sign is very simple. I drew up a design and enlarged it for a template.
The acrylic rods were heated using a heat gun and tacked in place along the way while they cooled.
I had some scrap fabric that I placed inside the frame. After the bat and lettering were done the pieces we hot glued on to the outside glass of a picture frame.

The black light is not mounted on the frame (I'm holding it for the picture). I wasn't sure if I needed to include the cost of the blacklight or not.

Now I just need a place to hang it where the kids won't break the glass.

COST

Frame: $25

Acrylic rods: 9 rods @ $0.50 = $4.50

Scrap black fabric: $1

Blacklight: $12.99

Total: $43.49

Very nice. Me likey.

I'd say add the blacklight into the cost since it is necessary for the glowing effect to work. If you can't edit yourself, just PM me and I'll add it in manually.

Groooovy!!! In that first frame I thought it was neon too.

Clean, simple, and elegant. Hey! You've got the sign, now you need to build a mini-bar so you can have your own club! Very exclusive, of course. :cool:

I had already included it in the total.

where did you get the acrylic rods?
I found them on ebay. A person dealing in night club stuff was selling them.
All you need is a heat gun to shape the rods.

Hauntie, were the rods colored when you got them?
The colored rods I purchased were red, yellow, orange and blue.
I don't want to give any endorsements here but just go to ebay or google and search for "acrylic rods UV". I got 40 rods for $19.99.

Hubby wants me to make up a racing sign for the garage with the rods I have left.

I,too, thought you were dealing with neon.

Excellent work. Love the fact that you can keep it up all year.

Very nice.
