DIY Neon Watch

It may be a tad messy but I still love this watch. The bright neon brings that pop that everyone will be searching for this summer. Fluorescents are one of the most refreshing colors and with summer just around the corner you should start stocking up on those fluorescent pieces and what better way to start off than with the bare necessity of organization, the watch. 


Having a contrasting buckle is optional but I feet the contrast harmonizes the entire accessory. 


Stuff you need:
An old or cheap plastic watch
Neon spray paint
Masking paint


1. Cover the parts of the watch that are not going to be sprayed with masking tape.


2. Preferably on a large sheet of newspaper spray paint the entire watch. For a more even coating, spray several thin layers of paint rather than one heavy coat. Remove the masking tape carefully.


Last but not at all least show off your new neon watch.

I love neon too!! But I tried to paint a necklace with spray a few weeks ago and It was a complete disaster... I guess the spray paint was not good enough! I'll try again :)
