DIY Glow-in-the-dark Halloween Candles.
Hey crafty friends! Are you ready for another Halloween glow-in-the-dark project? As you may have noticed, we’re big fans of creating glow in the dark crafts. My kids love anything from slime, to mason jars, and even parties. Halloween time is the perfect occasion to bring out the glow in the dark paint to create spooky crafts with the kids. You can use the paint on clothes or for home décor; either way kids will love watching them glow at night. Today I partnered with my friends over at I Love To Create, who are the makers of Tulip®, to share a new Halloween craft with you guys. These glow-in-the-dark Halloween candles are fun for the kids and fit perfectly with our black and white Halloween décor.

Optional: vinyl + cutting machine
Step one: using a cutting machine, like a Silhouette or Cricut, cut Halloween shapes out of vinyl. My drawing skills pretty much resemble my 4 year olds, but if you’re great at drawing you can skip this step. Although, I did like that the white vinyl helped the paint glow brighter against the dark candle. The paint will have a bright glow either way but the solid background made it so I didn’t have to use as much paint to cover the dark candle.Step two: apply the paint on top of your Halloween shapes. Tip: use a toothpick to spread the paint on smaller designs and intricate cuts. Allow your paint to dry overnight.I’m so happy with how they turned out! I haven’t quite decided if I’m going to keep the candles indoors or place them in a lantern on the porch. I would love to try this on flameless candles so that they can be “lit” but I couldn’t find any in black. For now, we’ll just enjoy the glowing shapes at night.
Also, be sure to check back next week. We’re working on another glow in the dark Halloween project with some of these beautiful colors.A few more ideas you may like:
