The process of Making Glowing Halloween Spirit Jugs from Empty Milk Containers Project is a fun way to get your children involved in making their own holiday decorations. Just asking your kids what type of emotions they want on their spirit glow jugs is going to be a fun conversation that will lead to many funny faces and giggles.
As the Halloween holiday is approaching, there is a growing interest for making glowing spirit jugs by frugal homesteading families.
So, as you are feeding your family daily instead of recycling those gallon milk jugs containers….. clean and save them. In no time at all, you will have quite a nice pile to use as a craft supplies.
Many homesteading families struggle to lower the money they spend while living a full fun life with their children. By showing your children how to create things frugally instead of your purchasing items makes them more self sufficient.
Let’s have some fun making your own Halloween decorations.
Materials and Tools:
Clean gallon milk jugs (as many as you can save)
Black permanent marker (Click here for free printable templates of faces)
String of clear low-wattage Christmas lights
All we need for making these spirit jugs are clean milk gallons, craft knife, black permanent marker, and string of Christmas lights. The black marker is to be used for drawing spooky faces on the gallons and children can practice their coloring skills in those faces!! The backsides of these gallons are cut of a small size, maybe just as size of a half dollar to place the battery operated lights. Christmas lights are hooked together in these gallons to give a perfect Halloween look.
Anyone who is ready for a great project this time, need to get ready for making spirit jugs this time as decoration of Halloween party.
Its simple and cost-effectiveness….. and just wait until your children’s eyes light up with laughter and pride because they made them.
If you don’t want to use Christmas lights then clean milk jugs, draw faces, fill milk jug halfway with water and add a activated shaken glow-stick.
