Want an interesting decorating idea for Halloween night this year? Then save your large plastic milk jugs, remove the labels and make Boo! faces to line the walk to your door!
I saw this great idea on Pinterest called Ghost Faces, so it's not my original idea. They used Christmas lights inside the jugs to light them up, and you can do that. However, if you saw my post about giving something other than candy this Halloween, you would know that I purchased hundreds of glow sticks to make the DIY Trick-or Treat Glow Sticks you see below.
What could I do with the extra glow sticks? I decided to see if they would work inside the jugs! And guess what? YES! They look awesome and I am like a little kid waiting until Halloween this year...
Whether you draw the faces by hand, or print, cut and paste them on, they look awesome!
I don't like being able to see the glow sticks so next time I will try stringing some metal nuts on them and using the connectors to make them into bracelets! Hopefully these can be squeezed in through the top and will lay on the bottom of the jug.
After Halloween is Over:
Either recycle them as usual or save them for next year. Imagine how many you could have by then!
Don't waste all that water! Use it for your plants :-)
The Glow Sticks:
I purchased 300 8" Lumistick Brand Glow Light Stick Bracelets WHOLESALE PACK on Amazon (affiliate link) to make both the Trick-or-Treats and the Boo! jugs.
