    Using your pencil mark your light positions with dots.
  2. Once your happy with placement use your drill to drill out the holes. Make sure to test that your lights fit into the holes snuggly.
  3. You can now use your sandpaper to smooth over the holes. You can also rub over the edges if you want a shabby chic or coastal, aged look.
    You can also paint in this step if you would like your letters or symbol to pop!

    Using the tape neaten up your wires by gathering them neatly and use small pieces of tape to stick them down to your letter or symbol.
