Halloween Craft

A while back I found a Halloween craft on Pinterest.  (By the way, are you on Pinterest? It’s awesome. Anyone can join anytime.  It’s a virtual bulletin board.)  I found this pin way back sometime this summer.  So I just pinned it to my Halloween board and pulled it up last week to finish it.

The only real prep I had to do for it was to save my milk cartons for a few weeks so we’d have enough.

My 7-year-old had a great time doing this.  She loves to be creative and she loves to decorate for changing seasons and holidays.  🙂 I love that about her.

My 4-year-old decided to play drums on the finished product!

Last but not least … after the sun went down … we were able to enjoy our finished product!  This was super easy and super fun, why don’t you give it at try at home with your littles? The ‘how-to’ is below!


How to make the Milk Carton Ghosts

What you’ll need:
empty milk cartons
black Sharpie marker
white string lights
sharp craft knife
How to do it:
Wash and dry out a few milk or bottled water cartons.  Draw faces on the front with a Sharpie marker.  Next, cut a hole big enough to fit the string lights in on the backside of the carton towards the bottom with your craft knife.  Arrange your milk cartons where you want them and divide up the lights between the cartons.  Push some of the lights in the back hole of the milk carton and string them between all the cartons.  Then plug the lights in and enjoy!
