Glowing Crystal Ball - Halloween Craft

Stormy Stewart


I found this on facebook

These crystal balls are crafted from ordinary second-hand and hardware store finds!

The glass domes are easily found most second-hand stores for a dollar or two, and candle bases from any garage sale or flea market. The addition of glitter gives the balls a mystical look, and the glow-sticks offer a safe alternative to candles or electricity.

The glow sticks will last for 8 to 12 hours depending on temperature and come in assorted colors, but green looks the best.

white glass dome (don't use clear or smoked)
acrylic craft paint with sparkles
1 inch wide paint brush
candle holder with wide base
glow sticks from hardware or camping supply store


1Clean the glass dome thoroughly and let it dry.
2Coat the dome with the sparkly acrylic paint using the paint brush and let it dry. You can also use a spray-on sparkle paint. The paint could take up to 48 hours to dry and should not be handled much.
3Activate a glow stick and place it inside the ball.
4Place the ball on the candle holder and enjoy.
5makes a wonderful camping nightlight for the kiddies also. Just put in another glow stick when you need it
