Disco Party Decoration Ideas Using Glow Sticks
Glow sticks are one of our favourite disco party essentials here at Kids Disco Parties. They will not only light up the dance floor, they are super FUN and not to mention cheap. If you have crafty kids or are simply looking for ways to get the kids involved in some pre-party disco party decorating we think you will LOVE some of our nifty disco party decoration ideas using glow sticks. They are all super affordable and simple enough for the kids to make so they’ll be entertained for hours.
1. Glow Stick Balloons
Filling balloons with glow sticks is a pretty fancy disco party decoration idea for your kid’s birthday party. We suggest using white or light coloured balloons so they glow extra bright! Once the balloons are half filled with air, crack a glow stick or two and carefully insert, then finish blowing up. Scatter on the table or with an adults help why not hang them upside down from the roof for some extra WOW factor
2. Glow Stick Coke Bottles
To create these colourful masterpieces, carefully cut the top off a glow stick and pour the contents into an empty coke bottle. If possible we suggest using glass bottles but plastic ones will shine just as bright! Secure the lid, shake it about and voila, glow in the dark bottles! For safety we recommend you get an adult to help you with this one and DO NOT DRINK from these bottles.
3. Glow Stick Chandelier
If you love getting crafty, you’ll love this one!

4. Glow Stick Wall Art
This is such a FUN idea to welcome guests to your child’s disco party! Using packets of glow sticks get the kids to create messages and pictures of their choice! Once you’re happy with your layout use some clear scotchguard to stick it to the wall.
** Parents – we recommend you hang up a black plastic sheet (grab one from your local hardware store for $10) on the wall before the messages get stuck on. This will not only help the glow sticks stand out but you’ll avoid any paint stripping disasters!
5. Neon/Glow Table Setting
This one is super easy and such a clever way to jazz up your snacks table! Put glow sticks around plates and cups for your party guests. Stick glow sticks to clear cutlery and create coasters for your cups. You can also put glow sticks under ice in the drinks bucket for some extra glow!
6. Glow Stick Wreath
Wreaths are not just for Christmas. Make one for your disco party decoration too!

7. Glow Stick Centerpiece
We just LOVE this one! It’s super cheap but looks a million bucks!
Pop down to the Reject Shop or Spotlight and pick up a pack of 50 Glow Sticks (should set you back $5) and also some large polystyrene ball halves.
Crack the glow sticks and push them into the polystyrene. Ta-Da! A super quick centerpiece that will impress everyone at your party!
