Things you will need:

Empty clear glass bottle with a lid


2 Needle nose pliers


Rubbing alcohol


Step 1:

To make your glowing neon bottle you will need to first make sure your clear glass bottle is clean, you dont want things floating in your bottle.

Step 2

Once your bottle is clean you will need to add water to your bottle, fill until about a half an inch from the top of the bottle and set aside for now.

Step 3

Now to make your glowing neon bottle you will need to take apart your highlighter. To take apart the highlighter you will need to use one pair if the needle nose pliers and pull off the end cap part of the
highlighter. Now use the needle nose pliers to take the color stick out of the highlighter.

Be careful not to touch the color stick or it can stain your clothes and skin.

Step 4

After you have the color stick out of the highlighter you will need to add the color into your glass bottle to make your glowing neon bottle. To do this just use the other pair of needle nose pliers and squeeze the color stick while it is directly over the clear glass bottle.

The highlighters color will drip into the water of the clear glass bottle. Continue to do this until you have your desired color, you may need to use more than one highlighter to get the desired color.

Step 5

Now you will need to add enough rubbing alcohol to the clear glass bottle to make sure it us completely filled. The rubbing alcohol is not mandarory but it will help keep the water from molding.

Step 6

Seal the bottle with it's lid making sure it is as tight as possible to keep the water from evaporating.

Step 7

Now shake the bottle to evenly distribute the highlighters color. Place a black light behind the glowing neon bottle, making sure it is not touching the bottle and you are ready to enjoy.
