Halloween Ghost Milk Jug: www.celebrations.com

Supplies:

 

Directions:

  1. Clean out your empty milk jug.
  2. Draw out your Halloween face using a pencil and then complete the face with a permanent sharpie marker.
  3. on the opposite side of the face, cut a 3 sided opening flap just about 2 inches wide and 2 inches tall.
  4. Place a few rocks in the bottom of your milk jugs to weigh them down.  They are so light that if you place them outdoors you don’t want them to blow away.
  5. In the same opening, add part of the string of lights in it.  Then lead the lights to the next opening.  I added about 5 to 7 lights in each jug.
