Spirit  Jugs

Total Time 1 hour

Ages school-age

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

What you'll need

  • Clean plastic gallon milk jugs
  • Black permanent marker
  • Craft knife
  • String of 50 clear low-wattage holiday lights

How to make it

  • Draw ghost eyes and mouths on the jugs. Tip: Leave the caps on while you do this, so the jugs don't dent.
  • Use the craft knife to cut a half-dollar-size hole in the back of each jug (a parent's job).
  • Arrange the ghosts near each other and string the lights between them, stuffing several bulbs into each of the jugs.
