Most thrift stores offer a plethora of vases in various sizes and colors. In my local shop, they usually start at $.99 cents, making this a very affordable way to incorporate the trend. With a little spray paint, you can add that burst of color in a low-investment way. If you don’t feel up to a DIY project, Etsy shop NASH POP offers an array of neon accent décor at affordable prices!

If you’re renting, chances are your building or landlord will allow you to paint as long as you repaint before you leave. Consider painting just your door a neon green or pink, you’ll get the benefit of a big impact and very little to repaint on your way out!
