I’ve been wanting to try to make these Glow in the Dark Pumpkin Balloons for a couple of years. But every time Halloween rolls around, I get swept up in the holiday flurry and completely forget about them! Last year, I added it to my phone to remind me. You will not believe how easy and fun these Glow in the Dark Pumpkin Balloons!
At first, I thought that a small glow stick would do the trick. Unfortunately, the light is not bright enough to be seen all the way through the balloon. I needed an actual light. That’s when I found these on Amazon.
This is NOT an affiliate link. I live in a Nexus state. This is just me helping out my fellow crafters.
These little LED lights around about 1.5 inches long and narrow enough to fit into the balloon. The light simply twists on and if you are careful, you can twist it off while still in the balloon. We tested them and left them on in the balloons just to see if it damaged the latex. No issues at all! AND they stayed lit for 48 hours!
To start, twist the light on and place in the orange balloon. Blow up the balloon (or fill with helium) with light inside. Set the balloon aside.
I created jack o lantern faces on my Cricut Explore. Since most people do not have a Cricut, I try to stick to posts that even you can do. I cut out the faces on black adhesive vinyl and attached them to the filled balloons. You can draw your own faces on the back of the black vinyl and cut with scissors.
I just love how these turned out! I’m going to fill them with helium and line the porch on Halloween!
What do you think? Super fun, right?! I even let Reed play with the black vinyl and create his own!
I’d love for you to pin this image!
