Ideas to make stars INDOORS?

okay, so without running to the store to buy glow in the dark stars, is there a creative way to create stars (that light up) indoors? Temporary stars indoors I should say lol.

  • If you have a table lamp, you could cut stars into the lamp shade. Cover the top and bottom openings with construction paper and do the same.

  • I think that could work if constructed right. Do you have any silver glitter at home? I was thinking make a few sliver glitter stars to reflect some light as well, just to add to the effect maybe? I'm just thinking out loud here lol

  • Take a flashlight (if it can stand up on its own that would be best) then construct a cone to go over the light & cover the top of the cone. Put holes all over the paper used to construct the cone & turn on the light then stars will appear!

    Thats all I've got for right now!

  • The have glow in the dark paint you can't see it during the day but at night glows, Also I love this, we have a turtle that lights up the whole room with start and you can change the colors to blue, green, and orange. I goes off after like 40 mins and even has a moon. I think you can get them at walmart or k mart my MIL order mine for my baby shower in some book.

  • I was thinking of doing that with lots of paper taped together then hung down from the ceiling so it's over the ceiling fan light.. (but not near or touching it).

  • lol yes we have silver glitter, that will probably work.. i actually used a sheet to cover the back half to shadow it off (and so less paper was needed lol. ) then put the paper up.. and dimmed the light slightly for more of a glow.. now to wait for it to get dark to see how it looks :)
