Craft Corner: Halloween Milk Jug Luminaries

🎃 Cool Craft for Halloween

By Laurie Corbett, Publisher Mom, South Shore Boston October 25, 2016

Halloween is upon us and I haven't found the decorations yet! So with a few empty milk jugs, a marker, and some glow sticks, we made our own!

What You Need:

  • Empty Plastic Milk/Water Jugs
  • Black Permanent Marker
  • Glow Sticks (we used the bracelet kind)

What You Do:

  1. Rinse out the milk jugs and let dry.
  2. Use a black permanent marker to draw a ghost, jack-o-lantern, Frankenstein's monster, and/or other monster faces on your milk jugs.
  3. When you're ready to use the luminaries, activate the glow sticks and place them inside each jug. We used six of the bracelet type, but you can use more or less to get the effect you are looking for.
  4. Place outside and enjoy!

Tips: It is easier to draw on some brands of milk/water jugs than others. Black markers work the best, but other colors are okay too! Use what you have. We used the color of the glow sticks we had help us decide what we wanted to make. Creativity rules here — just have fun!
