Summer Neon Trend – Home, Fashion, and Party Ideas

Neon has become a huge trend the past year, and we can definitely understand why! It instantly brightens up an outfit (or a party setting) with just a few pieces. Though it’s been trending for a while now, we haven’t had the chance to give it a try. Let’s face it, neon can be tricky. We definitely needed to do a little bit of picture research before we can get started!

In our search for neon inspiration, we found a few ideas that we think would help all of you out there who are a little scared of neon, too. Turns out–neon, not so scary! Here are our favorite neon inspirations, ranging from home decor, fashion, to party!

Spring Washi Tape Project Ideas

We don’t know about you, but washi tape is still a pretty new concept to us. What is washi tape, you ask? Washi tape is a new crafting item that originated from Japan. Similar to duct tape, it is sticky on one side, and patterned on the other. They come in a variety of patterns, and colors, and have a million and one different uses.

We found a few uses of washi tape that we wanted to share with everyone! They look so fun to try! Since they come in so many different colors, they are perfect for spring. Here are some of our favorite ideas from some crafty bloggers!
