Glow Stick Ideas

Cotton candy on a glow stick

Put a Glow stick in a balloon before you blow it up. Night time parties.

Fairies in a jar. DIRECTIONS: 1. Cut a glow stick and shake the contents into a jar. Add diamond glitter 2. Seal the top with a lid. 3. Shake. I found glow sticks at the Dollar Tree. I used a mason jar that I had left over from the Salt Art in a Jar project. **WARNINGS AND TIPS: "Be sure to read the warning on the back of the glowstick package. The ones I used were nontoxic but will stain clothes. Also, I used glowstick necklaces with the thought that it would be easier to cut than a thick glow stick."*

    Would luv to see step by step pictures of the good and the bad.

  • The Necktie Shop

    I'm not sure this is the safest thing to be doing, but if you are going to, you might as well save some money by getting your glow sticks at at wholesale prices.

    does diamond dust spray have the same results as diamond dust

  • Nancy Roberts

    I don't believe diamond dust spray is the same, material wise, as diamond dust.

    I got "diamond glitter" at hobby lobby only it's called finely crushed glass and got tons of glow sticks (the "wand", "sword" and really long ones) a dollar tree.... the glitter/glass does stick but is very cool. Even with out the glitter is awesome. The light lasts about 2-3 hours. Does make a mess but is veryfun. The thick glow sticks (what I would use) is a little tough to cut so I used wire cutters. Hope this helps!!!

Glow bubbles!!!!!

  • Beth Pratt

    It doesn't work. :( We tried it...and then I googled it to see if anyone else tried it. - There are other recipes with glow in the dark paint and bubbles that people say work.

  • Amanda Kooiman

    super cool idea

  • Sarah Malinoski

    Nope, doesn't work. We kept adding more glow stick liquid, but the glow extinguishes as soon as it interacts with the bubble liquid.

  • Vilja Til

    The glow stick-liquid won't mix with water

Lightsticks in a bathtub, I think we have to try this!


Break open a glow stick, dump it in a jar, shake it up and you have an instant glow stick lantern!
