PBS.Org says Neon signs that are made of neon lights are already a dying art.” We’ve seen them glowing on New York City theater billboards, Las Vegas casinos and Hong Kong high-rises. They cast unbidden light and shadow into restaurants and homes and are a part of the daily scenery for millions.

I Spy DIY in fact shared how to do a DIY Neon Letter Sign.” I chatted a bit about how I have been wanting a neon light FOREVER, but I never made the purchase because of the price tag. Now, I can make a million for a fraction of the price! It’s a simple as adhearing battery powered neon tubing to wire (thanks Shrimp Salad Circus for your tutorial which led me to this magical lighting). I have to admit, I was so excited when first I got the supplies, I started bending the wire into the first word that popped into my head!
