Here’s the thing: when a project glows in the dark, it’s just that much cooler. Whether you’re a baker, paper crafter or embroiderer, there are so many ways you can take your projects to a new (glow-in-the-dark) level.
1. Bold Buttercream
This buttercream may look basic and blue, but when you turn the lights off it lights up into a totally mind-blowing confection. (It tastes oh-so-good, too!) The glow effect is all thanks to quinine, an element found in tonic water.
2. Edible Slime
Whether you use it to top off a monster cake or just slurp it straight from a bowl, edible slime is a fun way to create some glow-in-the-dark fun. Again, you’ll want plenty of tonic water on hand to achieve that green glow.
3. Embossed Card
Making cards that pop is super easy — the secret is all in the embossing powder. When it’s heated and melted, it makes a ghostly effect.
4. Glo-Nuts Donuts
Turn the lights off — and black lights on — as you munch on these breakfast goodies. Because yep, that frosting is packed full of tonic water.
5. Glowing Thread Embroidery
Using glow-in-the-dark novelty threads is an easy way to make your embroidered projects glow, making machine embroidery cooler than ever.
