How to make a Neon Light for Halloween

This is a pretty simple and inexpensive project.  I had all of the supplies on hand except the neon light strand.  

Supplies for making a neon light word

Directions for making Halloween Neon Light

  • Write out the word Halloween the size and the style you desire.  I had my daughter write mine on my chalkboard wall.
  • Bend the wire to follow the lines of the word.  You will want to use strong tape to hold the wire in place.
  • As you bend the wire around the word use fishing line to tie the wire at the intersections.
  • Trace the wire with the neon light strand and use fishing wire to hold the lights to the wire.

Hang the finished word with clear hooks.

The lights even buzz a little, just like old school neon signs.
