There’s nothing I like more than browsing $2 shops. My favourite things are the ‘cheap’ versions of crafty items like washi tape, cabochons, etc. On a trip to find motor oil I came across bundles of rope for $2 (bargain) and purchased a few bundles - and then came across this project! Serendipitous! I’ve been looking for some cool coasters for my coffee table but haven’t been able to find anything I loved, but these are perfect. I plan on making these with yellow neon string to match my pillows - if you’re going to make them, you could even make larger versions for placemats!
Neon Plant Pots | The Proper Pinwheel
The thing with IKEA is that more often than not, you can pick out straight away that the item is from IKEA! I walk into someone’s house, see their pillows and go - IKEA. I watch tv shows and see someone’s bed and say - IKEA! IKEA is great for cheap items which is great for us low income earners (and those of us who constantly change their tastes!) but it can be a bit impersonal. Adding your own DIY touch to items means that you get the cheap price but it’s still ‘yours’. There are lots of great sites out there that show you how to do this (IKEA Hacks is great!) but you can’t go past a super quick makeover this - some neon spray paint brings these cheapo pots into the now (trendy pots!) and make them your own.
Neon Yellow Cap Toe Heels | A Pair & A Spare
Well neon & colour blocking look like they’re going to be staying around for a while, so I’m going to jump on board! I have a pair of old black flats that have seen better days which could really do with an overhaul, so I think they’re going to be getting a neon pink cap! Of course, if you don’t like neon you could go for pastel colours - mint or blue would look really pretty with black or even grey shoes!
Neon Shirt Dress | The Fuji Files
I love all of the neon projects that have been flooding the DIY world lately. Neon always looks best when it’s combined with a neutral in my opinion, and this white/yellow combo is perfect. And it’s a great way to re-use a shirt. Other combos that would look great are a coloured shirt with a print fabric panel or print shirt with a coloured fabric panel, and a ticking/striped shirt with a natural fabric like linen would be lovely. Perfect for work and play!
