Craft Project for Halloween

How to make milk jug Halloween ghost luminaries 

I came across this project and I was inspired by how easy and delightful it would be to make. Safeway sells these jugs for cheap or [you can recycle your milk jugs] and really you only need 3 at the least.

What you need to make this recycled Halloween craft:

  • Plastic milk jugs 
  • Christmas lights 
  • Permanent marker 
  • Scissors  

Rinse and clean your milk jugs first. Then have fun drawing some silly or spooky faces on them with a black marker.

Cut holes in the sides of your milk jugs so you can string the Christmas lights through them and have them sit side-by-side.

Feed the christmas lights through the holes making sure to bunch up plenty of lights in each milk jug

Line up the milk jugs, plug in the christmas lights, and admire your awesome halloween craft!
