How to make Glow in the Dark horseshoes!
One of our favorite things to do as a family is going camping. When we’re go camping we spend a lot of time playing games, especially backyard games. We love corn hole, ladder ball but horseshoes is one of our favorites!
One of the biggest problems we have when camping is that the adults like to hang out and play games after the kids go to bed. With that in mind we’re really excited that Krylon® has Krylon Glowz (available at Hobby Lobby!) a glow in the dark spray paint that we could use to make our game of horse shoes just a little bit better.
We wanted to turn our normal horseshoes into something extra cute and special for our camping trips.
We started out with normal horseshoes.
We wanted the horseshoes to be awesome during the day and then stand out at night. To start we painted the horseshoes a similar color of spray paint to the glow in the dark paint. We used Krylon ColorMaster™ Paint + Primer in Blue Ocean Breeze and Coral Isle.
After we painted the horseshoes and stakes a solid color we taped off parts of it so that I could add a bit more character.
After the base color spray paint was completely dry, I added 3 very light coats of Krylon Glowz spray paint in Blue and Pink. Make sure that you let the paint completely dry for a few hours before use.
Then after the lights goes out enjoy your awesome Glow in the Dark Horseshoes. I love that these horseshoes are super cute during the day and then even better once it’s dark. We love outdoor games and I am excited for many intense and fun games of horseshoes day AND night!
We are excited to be working with Krylon for this project. Opinions are my own and additional products used in the project were selected by us.
