DIY heart neon sign

Illuminated lettering in heart format is the classic and is simply fabulous in both the bedroom and the living room. Bring your own personal touch to the DIY by choosing the color for the neon light yourself.

What you need:

  • A large piece of paper in white or brown
  • Adhesive strips
  • pencil
  • Parcel tape
  • scissors
  • wire
  • Narrow neon light tube
  • Hot glue gun
  • Pliers

Neon lettering – it’s that easy

  1. step

    Fix the piece of paper with adhesive strips on a firm surface. The size of the paper depends on the planned neon lettering. Better to choose something too big instead of too small!

  2. step

    Use a pencil to sketch the shape (here a heart) or the lettering of your choice on the paper.

  3. step

    Lay out the cord to determine the length needed for the wire. To do this, you can loosely place the package tape around the shape.

  4. step

    In the next step, measure the wire to the length of the cord and shorten it with a suitable pair of pliers.

  5. step

    Now bend the wire around the shape on the paper around it. Make sure that you do this as precisely as possible, since this wire shape forms the basis for your neon letters.

  6. step

    To keep the wire in shape, you can fix it at individual points on the paper with adhesive strips.

  7. step

    Then glue the neon light tube directly onto the wire using the hot glue gun. Lights off, neon heart on! Finished!

For a cozy evening on the couch, the DIY heart neon light is just the thing. But also as a gift to your loved one or your best friend, a self-designed neon lettering is an imaginative idea. Let your creativity run free and design your own personal illuminated letters! We hope you enjoy crafting, decorating or giving away!
