Halloween is a time for frights, but it is also a time for crafts! Before buying new decorations or costumes, take a peek at some of these upcycled crafts that are easy, fun for kids, and can save you money!
Milk Jug Ghosts
Stick a light inside an empty milk jug, and watch the ghostly effect! Draw some frightening faces on with sharpie or paint and you’ve got a perfect welcome crew for trick-or-treaters!
Looking to step up your ghost game? Head to your local thrift store and pick up some old glass light covers or lamp shade covers. Pick the ones that have the ghostliest shape that will make any trick-or-treater fear your house. Cut outs eyes and a mouth from unwanted textiles hidden in your closest. Thick material such as felt works best! Once you cut and glue on the face, it's time to light the ghosts up! Try using a small light or candles you already have around the house.
Step one: collect empty bottles with fun shapes. Step two: use black paint to cover the bottles so you can’t see through them. Step three: Label each bottle with a gruesome potion or witches brew!
