Paper Craft Printables

Click the links below to view a craft related to each sign. Each PDF includes instructions, materials needed and images. If you don't have the exact materials handy, that's OK! We encourage you to get creative and experiment with what's available; different colors of paper and types of materials work fine and you could even cut up old magazines, coloring books, and newspapers for something unique. 

Stardust Star

This Stardust ornament is based on the stars from the 1968 Stardust hotel/casino sign. It was once the tallest sign in the world standing at 188 feet tall.

Coin Castle King

The king once ruled a kingdom of coins from a castle on Fremont Street. Debuting in the 1970s, the Coin Castle was a small casino with a large fiberglass king sitting atop the building. Today the Coin Castle King lives at The Neon Museum's Ne10 Studio.

Ugly Duckling

The happy neon duck dates to c.1997 and advertised Ugly Duckling Car Sales on East Fremont Street. It was restored to working condition in 2019 and now glows as it greets visitors by peeking over the fence at the Museum.

Treasure Island

Treasure Island debuted on the Strip in 1993 during the “family-friendly” era of the 1990s. Several new resorts featured kid-friendly attractions and Treasure Island boasted a live-action pirate battle. The fiberglass skull was part of the hotel’s original double-sided sign. It is the largest sculptural sign element at The Neon Museum.
