Milk Jug Ghosts

I love this idea! I am always looking for fun Halloween decorations that are unique and inexpensive to make and this one definitely fits – they are FREE!

How to make Ghostly Milk Jugs

Using a black permanent marker draw different ghost faces on 3-5 plastic milk jugs.  Using a box cutter or knife, cut a hole in the back of a plastic milk jug (large enough for you to be able to place some plain white Christmas lights in).  Line the jugs along a walkway or path leading up to the house to add a fun glow making it safe for Trick-or-Treaters!!!

Last year was the first year we did this and we go soooo many compliments.  The jugs were left over recycling after finishing our milk, we had a marker laying around the house and we used a set of Christmas lights that we already had on hand for our tree.  TOTALLY FREE!

To change it up a big, you can also draw on pumpkin faces and use orange Christmas lights and make these into glowing pumpkins!!!
