    Neon lights make you feel fabulous and ready to party.


    But a proper sign is an absurd amount of money. Make your own and make it awesome.

    You'll need a few things:



    Metal Wire, $9.99


    Neon light wire, $12.59

    Hot glue gun

    1. Draw out whatever's going up in neon lights and trace it with string.
