BOO! These Spirit Jugs are so easy to make and about as inexpensive as they come. We came across the idea for these ghostly guys a couple years ago on family fun. We knew with as much milk as our kids go through, it would take us no time at all to have all of the supplies handy. So if you are ready to get decorating for Halloween this is a great project to start with.
what you’ll need: [affiliate links included]
- clean gallon milk jugs
- black permanent marker
- craft knife
- string of clear low-wattage christmas lights
step one: draw some spooky faces (or not so spooky faces) on your milk jugs using your black marker.
step two: let your kids color in the faces while you bake a batch of cookies.
step three: using the craft knife (mom), cut a hole in the lower backside of the jug. about the size of a half dollar (or maybe a little bigger since i couldn’t picture a half dollar).
step four: line all of your ghosts up and stuff several lights in each one.
step five: place your group of glowing spirit jugs along your walkway or front porch to welcome those cute little holiday guests.
You could also use battery operated lights if you wanted to spread them out all over your yard. The nice part about them all being hooked together with the Christmas lights though is all you have to do is plug the cord into one outlet and you are in business!!
