How to Make DIY Glow in the Dark Crafts
The kids and I were trying to find something new to do during the summer break. After a fun day in the backyard, I kept seeing this spare tube of glow-in-the-dark bracelets and necklaces from the Dollar tree in my craft box.
This Amazon deal is a good deal for the number of glow sticks you get, perfect for a small or large group!
I looked up some of the glow in the dark craft ideas on Pinterest, but I couldn’t find anything that didn’t involve glue or paint.
For this idea, we created designs using glow sticks in the dark and did not need anything else. We didn’t know this would lead us to a new world of glowing art!
Our Smiley Face, for example, was created using three glowing necklaces and one glowing bracelet, and we were just getting started with our creativity.
The eyes are made with two glowing bracelets and the mouth with three green bracelets.
The next glow art project we made was a flower.
When making flower art, we used a necklace to make the flower’s middle and a necklace for the stem. We made each of the petals with different color bracelets, which turned out cool.
Glow in the Dark Painting
If you want to paint without the mess, use glow sticks. You could even make use of this for a Disney craft for kids; try making characters out of the glow sticks.
For example, we made Mickey Mouse out of two necklaces and two glowing bracelets.
The best part is this craft project will work for any age, from kids to adults!

It sounds like a lot of fun, and decorating with glowing stars, paint, and using glowing beads is totally up our alley.
Tip: We placed a black table cloth on the floor to help us take pictures of our glow crafts easier.
Lastly, I have to show you my favorite one! We could spell my website name Get Your Holiday On out of the necklaces and bracelets too! I thought that was really neat.
