Spooky Jugs Crafts

by Pam on October 6, 2011

Most of us have a surplus of plastic milk jugs. Why not use them to make these Spooky Jugs from Family Fun?

All you need for this project is:
Clean plastic gallon milk jugs
Black permanent marker
Craft knife
String of 50 clear low-wattage holiday lights

Draw ghost eyes and mouths on the jugs. Tip: Leave the caps on while you do this, so the jugs don’t dent.
Use the craft knife to cut a half-dollar-size hole in the back of each jug (a parent’s job).
Arrange the ghosts near each other and string the lights between them, stuffing several bulbs into each of the jugs.
