A Glow in the Dark Halloween

Decorating our homes for Halloween is half the fun. However, we all know that Halloween is a nighttime holiday. Who’s going to see all our decorations when it’s pitch black? No matter how spooky your table decor is, nobody is going to be able to see them if the lights are off! Here’s a DIY tip to create fun glow-in-the-dark decorations this Halloween! All you need is a can of glow in the dark spray paint/acrylic paint and a black light bulb.

There are many things that we can embellish with glow in the dark spray paint. One great idea is to buy cheap, ornate plastic frames from the dollar store. Remove the glass and spray paint the frame. Let dry and hang onto the wall. You can add in a spooky picture, or just leave the frame empty!

Glow in the dark pumpkins are great fun for families who do not want their children near candle lit jack-o-lanterns. Instead of carving pumpkins, use the glow in the dark paint to paint on a spooky face. Turn off the lights and see the face glow!

To make reverse glowing pumpkins, create masking tape cuouts of the image you do not want to glow. Stick onto the pumpkin and cover with spray paint. You can leave the tape on, or remove for a spooky glowing pumpkin head!

You can even make your face makeup glow in the dark! Buy cosmetic grade glow in the dark face paints and draw on your costume! You can be a glow in the dark cat, or a jack-o-lantern face. The choices are endless!

Glow in the dark spray paint/acrylic paint can be used on many surfaces. You can make almost anything glow in the dark with a little help of glow in the dark paint. Make sure the item you are painting is suitable for the paint. Glow in the dark paints usually glow just when dark, but if you want to keep it lit for a long amount of time, invest in a black light! Happy glowing!
