Got your glow sticks ordered? Now look at the possibilities!
These apparitions may seem friendly at first, but in the darkness their scary side comes out. To summon a ghost, snap one or two green eight-hour light sticks so they glow, and insert them into a white balloon. Inflate the balloon and tie it closed. Use a black marker to draw a wide-eyed visage. Repeat to make more, then affix ghosts to a wall with transparent tape and lower the lights.
Creepy Toilet Paper Tube Eyes
Begin using toilet paper generously. Let your two year old jam a whole roll down the toilet. Play Project Runway and design a couture gown out of Charmin or Quilted Northern. Lift your 10-squares-at-a-time ban and live a little! Time to wad, not fold, people!
Save your empty tubes and cut creepy eye shapes! Then at dusk, crack a glowstick, cover the entire tube in Saran-wrap and hide the lit tubes in your bushes! Spooooky!
Black Light Glowing Steps
I’ll admit, this looks like it takes quite a bit more finesse than my toilet paper craft. This should not be attempted by children. You’ll need black light to achieve the full effect. Please read up on the risks associated with glow sticks before proceeding. While wearing gloves, carefully cut open the glow sticks and pour them on patio steps. Keep liquid away from food, children and pets. Maybe this is a bad idea. . . . but it sure looks cool!
Thanks PixieParamedic for this awesome solution! Laundry Detergent (containing phosphors) will glow under black light! Use liquid detergent or mix powdered detergent with water and splatter anywhere! Much safer!
