Has the price tag prevented you from snagging a quirky-cool neon sign of your own? If so, this DIY for you. Jenni Radosevich of I Spy DIY has devised a way to get the funky look — and customize whatever message your heart desires — simply by manipulating a neon rope light.
The trick is to first create the words out of wire and then connect the battery-powered neon tubing to it. The technique is so straightforward (and affordable!) you can easily try practicing on simple words first, before working your way up to more complicated phrases. Or if you’re up for a challenge, you can even move on to the neon lightbulb lamp you see in the photo.
