Ghostly Milk Jugs

IMG_7715I have been saving up my milk jugs for weeks!  Finally I felt like I had enough to get this projected started! 

I colored on some faces (some spooky some silly) with a permenant marker, cut some BOO letters out on the good ol’ Cricut, modge podged them on.  Cut out a hole in the backs.  Inserted Christmas lights and {Ta-Da!}, spooky/silly milk jugs ghosts. 

So simple but lots of fun!  My Two Year-Old and I are so excited to plug in the lights at night (the hubs is still a little wary, worried about it being some kind of fire hazard – psh!  I kind of too, but you have to take risks when being crafty.)  They add a little to spook to our regular old pumpkins on our porch!

  3. What a cute idea. I saw this idea done around Christmas last year, but I really like the ghost take on them. Very cute! I hope you'll come link them up to my Halloween party this weekend! Have a great night.

  6. Fantastic upcycled project and so much more cost effective than altering craft pumpkins. I love the look of the milk jugs as ghosts and all the creative faces you drew. Thanks for sharing with us at A Crafty Soiree! Please join us next time too!
