1. Glow in the Dark Ornaments

To make a fun, homemade ornament, cut shapes out of cardboard or felt using a stencil, or one of your very own designs. Use a hot glue gun to attach a string to your cut out. Then, using Art 'N Glow's Paints, complete your masterpiece with a holiday pattern, snowflakes, or Santa's little elves! The fun never ends when using these eye-catching paints!

 3. Glow in the Dark Christmas Tree Table Decoration

Trying to find that perfect table decoration? Look no further! In just a few simple steps you can make your very own glow in the dark Christmas tree. All you need is an empty paper towel or toilet paper roll, green felt, scissors, a hot glue gun, and Art 'N Glow's glow in the dark paints. Adjust the cardboard roll to the desired height, then cut out two identical Christmas tree shapes from the felt. Make sure that the cutouts are large enough to cover the roll. Next, glue the edges of the two cutouts together, leaving the base of the tree open. This creates a sleeve for the roll. Slide the roll into the sleeve, then decorate your tree with ornaments, tinsel, and even a star using Art 'N Glow's Glow in the Dark Paints.

The possibilities are endless when using Art 'N Glow's glow in the dark paints. They are guaranteed to make your holiday crafts come to life and bring smiles to all who use them.

    Hello Angela,

    Our glow in the dark paints are best charged with sunlight or UV light, so if you’re able to use UV string lights for your project that would work best to charge the glow. Our brightest-glowing colors are Neutral Green and Neutral Aqua, so they are always the best options for outdoor applications!

    Please feel free to reach out to us directly via email at if you have any further questions :)

    I am brainstorming for ideas. We have a yacht that we may enter in a boat parade. I am excited to decorate for the grandkids, too, but don’t want to spend a fortune. I am looking at Pinterest, etc for ideas and themes. I wondered if i have a painted backdrop out of cloth or cardboard to put around the front of the boat (like the big windshield under the bridge) to use in conjunction with lights how that would work. I am trying to decide how to add bright color or light to my design. But would i need special lighting to make the painted colors stand out. Would white lights work best? Thank you!
