DIY: Glow In The Dark Balloons

Glow in the dark balloons would be a fun idea for a nighttime wedding or party.

Materials Needed:

  • Package of colorful balloons
  • Glowsticks

Step 1: Crack open the glowsticks and shake them as needed to get them glowing brightly. I used the long skinny bracelet size sticks but the short stocky glow sticks would work well too.

Step 2: Blow up the balloon. We tried inserting the glow stick into the balloon before blowing it up. While it did work, it was hard to blow up the balloon. We found that it was easier to start with blowing up the balloon alone.

Step 3: Once the balloon is inflated, wet the tip of the glow stick and wiggle it down into the balloon while holding the open end of the balloon tightly closed around the stick to keep the air from escaping.

Step 4: Once the glow stick drops down into the balloon, tie the balloon off with a knot.

Tips:  We found that the yellow and green glow sticks were the brightest and the light colored or even clear balloons let the light shine through the brightest. In a few balloons we even added two glow sticks to them to make them extra bright.
