Halloween Idea: Spooky Ghostly Balloons

Halloween is in 4 sleeps…and our family has YET to decorate the pumpkins on our doorstep. We’ll get to it, I’m sure.

However, we HAVE made spooky ghost balloons! They are the perfect decoration and take little time to prepare.

What You’ll Need

  • black marker
  • white balloon
  • green glowing bracelets



1. Activate a glowing bracelet (keep in mind the length of time that the bracelet will continue to glow…most are between 4-8 hours)

2. Inflate a balloon. Just before tying the balloon closed, insert the glowing bracelet.

3. Once inflated and tied off, draw a ghostly face on the balloon. The goofier and spookier, the better.

Finally, find a dark place to hang up the balloon, such as in the basement, in a hallway or hanging from a tree.

Set them up an hour or so before you expect Trick ‘or Treaters!


Happy Halloween!
