Materials

  • C-9 transparent indoor/outdoor lights- the lights with the big bulbs
  • 10-25 one gallon milk/water jugs

Instructions

Rinse out your jugs and let dry. If it is windy in your area, you may want to put sand or rocks in the bottom of the jugs to keep them in place. Place one light into the mouth of each jug.

When I use these as my decorations, I fill the bottles partially with water. In my area, the water freezes and creates a weight in the bottles. You just loosely hang the lights in the top of the bottle. This is good decoration when they are to be seen from a distance.

I did this up my driveway and it looks really nice.

I made mine a little different. I cut the top off of the milk jug and used the square bottom. I got 2-8foot 2x4's and stapled the lights to it. Then I cut slits on the milk jugs and stapled them over each light. When the holidays are over I store them in the rafters of my garage for next year.

PICO ... I LIKE YOUR IDEA. I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW YOU GET TO A BURNED OUT BULB TO REPLACE IT.

Recycle Milk Jugs As Garbage Bins. I reuse milk containers as garbage bins all over the house. Carefully cut top of milk carton leaving handle intact.

I rinse and cut our plastic milk jugs in half. I cut them above the label. Then I cut a piece off and tie it to the little basket. They are really cute.

How about hot glue and buttons? Or, spray paint it one solid color and then spray paint holding the can further away, using another color...this makes a "spritz" look. Or, burn different colors of candles and pour their hot wax over the bottle.

Hope these help.

Make a fabric sack or just wrap some pretty fabric around it & tie with a pretty ribbon :) You could also put some nice artificial flowers standing in it. Fill with sand & make a great & attractive doorstop!
