Sometimes the easiest ideas are the best.
At a Halloween party last year, I saw this idea and thought it would be a great one to share with readers.
Simple and fast to assemble, these spooky balloons will add a ghostly glow to your yard or home on All Hallow’s eve.
For maximum effect, remember to add the glow sticks just before your guests are expected to arrive.
- Packages of white, round balloons (available at Dollar Stores)
- Packages of glow sticks (available at Dollar Stores)
- Black felt pen
- Scotch tape or small finishing nails
Remove the glow sticks from their packages and follow directions to start the glow!
Blow up your balloon 3/4 of the way and then insert the glow stick inside. Tie off the balloon.
Draw a ghostly face on the largest section of the balloon.
Attach the balloons to the tree branches outside or inside your home. Dim the lights and see the glow!
*Did you know?
To lengthen the life of your pumpkin and stop decay, simple wash the outside and inside with 1 cup of bleach to 1 gallon cold water. Your pumpkin will last 4 times as long!
