Add extra glow in the dark fun to your party décor with an oh-so-easy party DIY. This tablecloth went perfectly with my son’s glow in the dark themed birthday party!  Plus, he had a blast helping.

Supplies:

  • Black tablecloths
  • Neon paint (I found that Martha Stewart’s brand glowed best. I purchased them at Michaels for about $4 per color.)
  • White paint (White glows great in black lights!)
  • Paintbrush
  • Paper plate

Instructions:
