Plastic Jug Wall Masks

Wall masks made from plastic jugs.

Approximate Time: Depends on details added.

Supplies:

  • rectangular plastic jugs
  • textured spray paint

  • details of your choice for hair, eyes, mouth, etc.
  • string for hanging

Instructions:

Cut tops off jugs as shown in photo. Make a hole at top center and make a string loop for hanging. Protect surface with newspapers where you expect to spray and then spray using textured spray paint, available in paint departments of most stores. Let dry before hanging.

Kids will have fun adding plastic eyes, loop earrings, yarn hair etc. Another idea would be to hang a number of them vertically in a row to make a pretend totem pole.

When I first saw these I really thought they were the masks you make and decorate. I mean the real thing. I can see where it would be very fun for the young ones to decorate them.

You could hang on an outside pole or tree and use as you said for a totem pole. Paint with bright colors and have fun with it.

These really do look like some of the masks you see in museums. Really made me smile when I realized what they were made of. What a great idea.

This was posted in 2009 so this exact jug may no longer be in existence. Plastic packaging has gotten much thinner and more efficient in the intervening years.

But there may be something that has a similar look still available. I would look at cleaning supplies like laundry detergent or cat litter containers.

Unfortunately, this was submitted in 2009 and I don't think this member is still active on the site.

They look like laundry detergent jugs to me, the kind with a handle that you then upend to dispense. I think they just cut the top handle part off. I might look at the laundry or cleaning aisle at a supermarket or home improvement store to see what you can find.

Good luck and let us know what you

They are gallon milk jugs. (You must not have children!) You can buy milk 1/2 gal size, as well, which would be cute for the totem pole idea to do both sizes.

I absolutely love these.

I plan on making them for my balcony, adding a hole on top and then hanging them over a plant so they look like they have hair.

I hope you show us a photo of how they turn out. The plant hair sounds like a neat idea.

I've been racking my brain on the internet trying to find this jug. It's called an "F jug" and looks like it's "mostly" used for non-food products; i.e., cleaners, antifreeze, weed killer. However, it's not showing up with the "forehead" that our mask has (which I think makes this mask).

It could be that this jug is no longer being produced since this post is from 2009. If you guys have any luck finding it, please share. Every grocery store I visit, I'm checking out all the jugs!

I thought it was a laundry soap container, that you carry and then set on it's side. I feel like I saw kitty litter in a similar container.You could be right about it being discontinued. I'll have to look around and see if I can find one.

This was posted in 2009 so it is possible that these exact bottles are no longer being used. I believe I have seen a similar shape with kitty litter bottles and laundry detergent.
