One thing I love about Pinterest is how it can be your own personal Internet time machine, unearthing forgotten gems from blogs you follow that you may have missed. I hadn’t seen this twinkle board DIY on Design*Sponge at the time, but it bubbled up again on some pin boards and won me over. (Also, how perfect that it is quite literally a “delight” spelled out in lights! It called out to me.)

It would be sweet over a headboard in a kids’ room, and it’s like a sophisticated Lite-Brite placed here over a couch. And since it essentially uses Christmas lights, I think it’d make a nice holiday decoration. It’s so customizable — you could swap in different colored lights, and of course, try spelling out another word or a name. “OMG” or “Ooh la la” might be my choices.

What word or name would you choose for this craft?
