For Aaliyah's birthday@vanessabowling
it did not work out as planned! glow sticks weighed down the balloons and it was not illuminating ):
Break a glow stick into it- then blow it up...
Do not break open a glow stick and blow it in! I just tried it and it created some kind of chemical reaction and blew up almost instantly! The liquid also turned back into a crystal form.. Just an FYI!
Just fyi, Walmart now sells these!
Does NOT look like this. I think this was photo shopped.
I was very disappointed. I should have read these comments first. It just looked like a glow stick in the bottom and even when it was super dark, it did not glow like the pic. Glad I tried it. I would suggest people try 1 first to see if they like it. I wasted $20 on 14 ballons and glow sticks. Glow sticks look great though in the bath tub or swimming pool. I have done that at night time. Kids lovvved it.
Mixed reviews on this one. ????
I was looking on Walmart.com and can't find them. Do you have the link? Thanks!
I love this idea so much!!!!!!
I tried this with a bracelet size glow stick and it went to the floor! Any other ideas for this craft?
Break the glow stick and shake it into the balloon!
Walmart sells balloons that already have lights in them when u ow them up
Did you put helium in it Laura?? Ijs
thats an excellent find
does not look like ptc tried this idea for my pool
Very cool!! Thanks for sharing!!!
Was so excited but this did not work.
Would this show up in the day time in a basement without a ton of light?
I was going to repin this until I read the comments from others so I started looking around for better ways to do the balloon lights for my daughters wedding and this is the best thing I have found. they are Light Up Balloon Stick Holders Description:Light Up Balloon Stick Now you can create your own light up balloon with the balloon stick. They are re-usable and require (2) 3V CR2032 batteries (included). Simply blow up your balloon with Air, (save money $$ no helium required), insert the light up balloon stick, tie wrap to balloon end, snap into holder and presto…you have your very own light up balloon! Great for birthday parties, weddings, lighting up your backyard pool, your business or just for fun! Kids and adults alike LOVE the light up balloons. ............. Hope this helps everyone....... Happy pinning
by the way if your interested in the site I found them at you will have to check out my party decorations DIY board on my pinterest page, Pinterest will not allow the site to be posted in the comments area, they flag it as spam sorry.
To everyone disappointed with these- these are actually LED lights in balloons. They are sold, and are usually on sale on "kgb deals". A glow stick in a balloon is going to look like a glow stick in a balloon, which i am fine with, im just going to string them to a fence etc.
I just thought of this. I thought it had never been done before. It's an awesome idea.
the ones from walmart with the light in them will not float with helium. they are just for filling with air.
Tried this for my angel sons balloon release and they didn't glow at all! :-(
What a great idea...you could also put some Hershey Hugs in them and put "Hugs and Kisses"!
