Halloween!!!! I cannot wait it is almost here and I am still decorating for it! I love this idea. You can use any empty jugs really even if they are colored I think it would add to it! So here is how you do it:
Clean plastic gallon jugs
Black permanent marker (you can get creative and use whatever color you want too)
Knife or Scissor
String of 50 low-wattage holiday lights (you can use white lights but what fun is that, if you have holiday lights at home already use them. Icicle lights would be perfect for this project for example:Led/Energy Saving Holiday Lights)
1.Draw eyes and mouths on the jugs. Be creative it is Halloween so go scary, silly or just plain realistic.
2.Use the craft knife to cut a half-dollar-size hole in the back of each jug.
3.Arrange the jug-o-lanterns near each other and string the lights between them, stuffing several bulbs into each of the jugs.
4. Optional: Glue things to your jugs like bat wings, or stems and leaves. Decorate them anyway you want. Use colors or make them ghosts. These crafts can be saved and reused so make them original.
This is a super fun craft for a Halloween party. Kids can take these home to show their parents and make more of their own.
