Craft Project - Spirit Jugs

Stationed on a walkway or porch, these homemade lanterns will extend a ghostly greeting and good-bye to all your holiday visitors.


• Clean Plastic Gallon Milk Jugs
• Black Permanent Marker
• Craft Knife
• String of 50 Clear Low-Wattage Lights




1. Draw ghost eyes and mouths on the jugs. Tip: Leave the caps on while you do this, so the jugs don't dent.

2. Use the craft knife to cut a half-dollar-size hole in the back of each jug (a parent's job).

3. Arrange the ghosts near each other and string the lights between them, stuffing several bulbs into each of the jugs.

For more information and tips, check out these Spirit Jugs on
