Glow in the dark materials are so fun as they typically look white (or a greenish white) when in daylight but then glow a green when in the dark! They are super versatile for crafts year round but even more fun in the Halloween season! Check out the glow in the dark craft materials I’ve personally used to make Halloween crafts over the year
We’re two months until Halloween and I’m in full blown fall and Halloween crafting mode. If you’re in that same mindset, here are some of my favorite glow in the dark craft supplies I’ve used to create glow in the dark crafts over the years!
Glow in the Dark Embroidery Floss
DMC makes a “Light Effects” embroidery floss that glows when exposed to light. I used 2 skeins of it on this skull string art I had made for Wholesale Party Supplies a few years back.
The price is a little more expensive than their other embroidery floss skeins but for good reason – the glow! You can grab the free template and see how I made this Halloween glow in the dark string art piece here.
Glow in the Dark HTV Vinyl
Tip: If you’re looking to create some glow in the dark fabric based crafts, especially t-shirts this Halloween season, go get it now! It will not be in stores the weeks before holiday as the thoughts start kicking in for everyone and they get bought up!
I’ve used Siser glow in the dark HTV vinyl in several ways, including a Halloween pumpkin shirt for my dad’s brewery, this All day all night for my active nephews and for this truth serum Halloween drink koozies I made for last Halloween. I typically get this roll for $9.99 when there’s a sale so it might be worth it to hold out or keep an eye on the price!
It would be great for any Halloween activity that might happen in dimmer light!
Glow in the Dark Paint
Deco Art makes a glow in the dark paint that I used along with a Cricut cut freezer paper stencil to make some punny tote bags for Wholesale Halloween Costumes.
When “charged” with some bright light, it was glowing revealing this fun design! You can grab the free svg cut file for these tote bags over on the Wholesale Halloween costumes blog.
