Ghostly decorations

  • Clean plastic gallon milk jugs
  • Black permanent marker
  • Craft knife
  • String of 50 clear low-wattage holiday lights (these can be easily bought for $1 at your local dollar tree)
  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. PARENTS: Use the craft knife to cut a half-dollar-size hole in the back of each jug.
  3. Arrange the ghosts near each other and string
    the lights between them, stuffing several bulbs into each of the jugs. Or you could use one string of lights per jug. Your call.
