The Game of Life

Peter Good at Glad Tidings Assembly of God in West Lawn, Pennsylvania brings us this vivacious stage prop.

The letter panels stood 5 feet high, 3 1/2 feet wide, and 1 foot deep. The letters were back lit with halogen strip shop lights from Lowes and Home Depot.

    This looks great! How were the letters attached within the boxes? Are the colors within each box cloth?

    hi guys. ok so for all the material used on this project both color and white i used: drum role please! ………………… bed sheets. :)

    i wrapped the the letter in 3mil plastic then a white sheet, from front to back stapled on the back side. i then wrapped the box section in 3 mil plastic to dissipate the light then attached the colored bed sheets. then attached the color section to the back of the letter. cut the extra fabric inside the letter to clean it up. the letters were "hung" in place by using a small board on the back side of the letter attached to brace on the back side of the light. the 2 boards top and bottom were small enough to hold the letters in place and allow light around so there would be no shadow. i hope that makes sense.

    i think colored bed sheets are an amazing way to get cheap colored fabric. and usually if you get a queen of king size it is VERY large square footage….


  5. Do you still have the letters? Would you consider selling them?
