Here's a cute way to recycle your gallon milk jugs!

Approximate Time: About 20 minutes



  1. Use a black marker to draw your ghost face onto the milk jug.
  2. Paint eyes and mouth with black acrylic paint and allow to dry.
  3. Paint highlights on eyes by dipping the paint brush handle end into white acrylic paint. Dot onto each eye.
  4. On back lower portion of jug, draw a 2 1/2 to 3-inch diameter circle and cut out to create a hole.
  5. Ad
  6. Insert a battery-operated votive or mini-set of clear holiday lights through the hole so that your ghost lights up.

I would empty the jug, then paint eyes on it and a mouth with black marker, and then affix a white fabric to the bottom of the jug so that it trails in the wind. Then you can attach the 'ghost' to your porch or whatnot to have a fun Halloween decoration
