I bought the light at the Dollar Tree... you guessed it for a dollar. Then I cut a dowel rod for the sign to hang from. I had Trevor drill the hole in the light to attach the dowel rod. I saw all kinds of messed up happening if I drilled it. I did however drill the hole in the piece of wood that I attached the light to. I printed out the "North Pole" and just attached it with some ribbon. Then I covered the wood base with some batting. That's where the glue gun came in and I burned my finger...not once...not twice...yep 3 times!!
