Glow in the dark yarn? Wow, I never knew they made such a product! I suppose you could dab on some fluorescent glow in the dark paint on your project if you could not find the yarn. Or make the pin a bit larger and use a tiny battery operated LED light. I would be careful with really little children in this one, make sure you are safe. But I love the idea of a little lady bug in your hair! Sweet!
