Sigh. This one is a bust. I had grand visions of glowing cylinders but my glowsticks were duds. I think I got a bad batch, but that is what I get for buying them in the clearance section of the dollar store.
Here are pics anyway. This cylinder was inspired by Jolanda and Quentin's wedding awhile back. They created a lounge and put glowsticks all over the place. They were a hit with kids and adults alike, and it looked soo cool!
Maybe you and your fiance met at a rave, now the glowsticks take on a personal meaning.
When you bend the glowstick in to a circle it fits perfectly in the cylinder. It would be so cool to stack them up! Or leave the sticks straight and have glowing rods. Hard to see the actual cylinder due to the darkness, which makes the effect even cooler (like floating glowsticks!). One little green glowstick is working nice, showing you the potential!
Hopefully if you try this cylinder it turns out better than mine. Buy a test batch of glowsticks first...
