Glowing, No-Mess Slime (yes, No Mess!)

6 Materials
1 Day

Need slime as part of your Halloween décor but don’t want to deal with the mess? This shapeable glowing slime can be molded into almost any form, lights up for your nighttime display, and it’s easy to pack away after the holiday is over.

You’ll need: (affiliate link proceeds earned on my blog are donated to no-kill animal shelters and rescue organizations):

Chicken wire, spray foam insulation, and green string lights

A drop cloth, florescent green spray paint, and protective gloves

First, form the chicken wire into your desired shape.

I want to make it look like slime is running down some steps so I’m bending the wire to fit each angle.

Place the formed chicken wire over a drop cloth and lay the green string lights so they cover the surface. Ensure the outlet end is pulled out and away from the wire.

Using protective gloves, spray the foam insulation all over the wire and the lights so that everything is fully covered. Spray in a random pattern so the foam looks like oozing slime.

Allow to fully expand and harden. This will take a few hours.

Once dried, use the florescent green spray paint to lightly coat the surface.

After the paint has dried, set your finished slime back onto the spot where you want to display it and place additional props around it as needed. Your slime will look creepy during the day…

…and glow an icky green at night.

    Wow, KB, judgy much? If my knees allowed it, I'd wear heels like that every day. I hate 'sensible' hair and wardrobes. It ages you faster than the sun!

    Please keep wearing your fabulous heels!

      You are right. Not normal for me. I'd been watching some misongynistic newscast and that post was unlike me! I love high heels, I have a job where I run in them, though no one should have too. Dedicated to animal rescue, you'll never know... not a jealous person, though you might think that. Bad moment which I regret, forgive me. The post is very creative, very talented young woman. I love the hometalk site, have learned a lot and hate snarky comments by those who live to hurt others feelings.
