Glow in the Dark Candy Bag

By: Jeanette Vanetta for Kreinik

Use plastic canvas to stitch a glowing bag for the trick-or-treater on Halloween. Keep in mind these glow-in-the-dark threads are not a safety-rated reflective material for children. Have your child wear reflectors or carry a flashlight.
