8 Bright + Cheery Neon Spring Crafts

DIY Neon Dipped Plant Pots

Is it a bit dreary out­side your win­dows? I know it still feels that way here in the Mid­west, and the news sug­gests a large part of the coun­try is still in the throes of a very slowly dying win­ter. But we’re all ready for some color.

So let’s stop wait­ing! Add a splash of neon to your sur­round­ings, and I swear it’s the next best thing to sun­light. It’s like a mini dose of vit­a­min D wrapped in eye-opening color. Even though I’m not a fan of neon in some areas (no neon cloth­ing in this house­hold), there is some­thing gor­geous about adding a bit to your acces­sories. Which one of these DIY’s suits your personality?

DIY Neon Fabric Coil Bowls

visit The Red Thread for the tutorial

Now this is how I like to reuse fabric—find those old T-shirts and sheets and start coil­ing. I’ve even seen great neon cord at Home Depot.

DIY Neon Edged Boxes

I just saw these boxes at the local craft store, and though they’re classy as is, this neon edg­ing totally updates them. I’m in.

Printable Neon Stationery Set

Print­able Neon Sta­tionery Set
visit How About Orange for the tutorial

Now this is how you use neon office paper. Enough with the bad fly­ers stuck under wind­shield wipers. Get these print­a­bles and brighten up the mail and every­one you know! That awe­some retro “hello” on top is an added bonus!

DIY Papercut Lamp

DIY Paper­cut Lamp
visit Make for the tutorial

I remem­ber hav­ing seri­ous lust issues for the Tord Boon­tje laser­cut lamps when they first debuted. I still love them. Now we can make our own—in any color we choose. I’m a happy camper for this tutorial!

DIY Neon Necklace

DIY Neon Neck­lace
visit What I Wore for the tutorial

My favorite gray sweater is bor­ing me to pieces at this point. Maybe adding a neon neck­lace would cheer things up. I’ll bet my daugh­ter would love wear­ing one of these too.

DIY Neon Dipped Tote Bag

Neon Dipped DIY Tote Bag
visit Madi­son Made for the tutorial

My daugh­ter has reached the age where tote bags save us every­day. We use them for going to the library, dance class, and piano lessons. A neon tote would be so easy to keep track of. Plus, if she helped make it, maybe she’d be less likely to lose it?

DIY Neon Candles

DIY Neon Can­dles
visit Kate’s Cre­ative Space for the tutorial

White taper can­dles can be beau­ti­ful and min­i­mal, but why not shake it up once in awhile? I’d love sev­eral of these neon can­dles on our din­ing table for a spe­cial fam­ily meal.
