Make Pumpkins from Plastic Milk Jugs

This is a fun Halloween craft you can help your kids with. Instead of buying real pumpkins to use for your Halloween, decorations, why not use plastic milk jugs instead. I took about 4 empty plastic milk jugs and turned them into pumpkins.


Take about 4 or 5 clean empty milk jugs and orange and black acrylic craft paints. Have the kids paint the jugs orange, let dry for an hour. Then paint eye, nose and mouth on the jug. Parents can cut yarn into different lengths for hair. The kids can glue the hair onto the jugs and add other things to make scary pumpkins.
