This project is part of the DIY Halloween Costumes with Balloons Series.

Be the star of Halloween night. No, literally! A few stars and a gold crescent moon balloon turn a simple black dress into a sparkly night sky.



  • Balloon Time Helium Tank
  • Black dress or outfit
  • Gold die-cut stars
  • Sewing needle
  • Fishing line
  • Gold crescent moon balloon


  1. Hand-stitch a few stars to your dress or outfit. To do this, my stars had holes in one point for hanging, so I just looped a piece of fishing line through and stitched them to the dress. Be sure to tie a knot underneath when done. You could also use hot glue, if you prefer.
  2. Inflate the moon balloon with helium and attach it with fishing line.
  3. To add more flair, you can tie a few gold stars to the fishing line hanging from the moon.
