Cool DIY projects using permanent spray in neon shades

If you enjoy using vibrant shades, you're sure to love using edding neon sprays! They allow you to create novel effects on a range of objects – such as the wicker bike baskets shown here – that are guaranteed to get you noticed. You can also transform plain home accessories into unique eye-catchers at the flick of a wrist. There's a range of colours to choose from: neon orange, neon pink and neon green. The spray paints are also ideal for upcycling projects – for example, you can quickly transform a plain wooden crate, or a basket that's beginning to show its age, into a funky bike basket. Simply follow our step-by-step video tutorial to see how it's done.
