How to Make Floating Glow in the Dark Ghosts for Halloween

How to make Floating Ghosts for Halloween


– balloon
– black permanent marker
– glow in the dark acrylic paint (I use orange glow paint with gold balloon. If you have white glow paint, use a white balloon)
– paintbrush

Step 1.

Put some paint on a cardboard…

… and apply it with the paintbrush…


… on the balloon.

Like this.

Let it dry well.

Step. 2

Use the permanent marker to add eyes and mouth. Let it dry.

Now, on daylight the balloon is gold, but in the dark, it glows.


If for some reason the paint is peeling, clean the balloon and repeat the steps above on the inflated balloon.
