5 Glow-in-the-Dark Crafts That Are Scarily Fun to Make

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.
