Milk Jug Ghosts

My kids did not have school on Monday, so while my 2 year old took a nap, my older two kids and I made Halloween crafts.  I had been saving my milk jugs for awhile because I had seen this idea on another blog and knew my kids would enjoy it.  We cleaned the date and the label off with Goof Off.

Next was the fun part, decorating the milk jugs.  I let the kids draw whatever they wanted on the milk jugs with permenant markers.  My daughter also made a witch and Frankenstein jug. 

Next, I took a razor blade and cut a small hole in the back for the lights.  Then I used a string of 100 white Christmas lights and put as many lights in each jug as possible.  We positioned them on the buffet and plugged in the lights.  They are so fun to look at everyday!  I love how my son made the 2nd one in from the left looking at the middle jug.

  1. Did you happen to see the idea on The Krazy Coupon Lady? She posted on it in September & I've been saving my milk jugs for this same idea too!
