Neon light signs...
Photograph of a large painted sign in the form of a cowboy. The cowboy is winking one eye. He's lifting his left hand, and pointing that thumb towards the building to his right. A lighted cigarette dangles from the corner of his mouth. He's wearing a cowboy hat, boots, and a scarf. Glowing neon tubes highlight the outlines of the cowboy, the cigarette, his boots, and the folds of his tied scarf.
@Liz Palik Here ya go. You could do it on a bigger scale and cut out the letters from cardboard or thick poster board. Paint them up, then stick the lights through them. ::This DIY would be great for a multitude of different words (by a bar in the house, in a kids room, etc.) It's like a faux neon sign.
