I started this project thinking I was going to make ghosts, but some of the faces I made sort of look like pumpkin faces. So, I’m declaring these “Milk Jug Pumpkins”. It was so simple, I think the hardest part was remembering to not recycle the jugs. I collected these over a few weeks, but I wish I would have had more. I think I’ll add-on to this idea next year with my original intent – Ghosts!
- Milk jugs – I love the one 1/2 gallon jug I found. I’ll have to add a few more next time
- Black Sharpie Markers
- Box Cutter
- Christmas Lights (white for ghosts, orange for pumpkins)
- Google – used it to find different ideas for the faces
It’s really simple. Clean out the jugs and let dry. Draw faces on with black sharpies, I went over the faces twice, it made them darker. Then I cut 2 holes on back side, first using the box cutter to start the hole, then the scissors to make it larger. The hole should be about the size of a half dollar, then fish the lights through and keep the jugs in a row. Plug them in and there you have it, Pumpkins!
These will travel great in the camper and I will line my sidewalk for Halloween at home. Now, the house is almost fully decorated, bring on the trick or treaters. How do you decorate your site/house? Have you ever tried to make some of the decorations yourself?
