I really love Halloween! I love all of it: the candy, the horror movies that I watch with one eye open and especially the time that I spend with the kiddies choosing costumes and dressing up.

After doing a round of the neighborhood, soaking in all the Halloween fun by attending our neighborhood block party, and giving out candy, my family and I always end up watching one of our favorite Halloween movies while we enjoy our candy loot and some In Snax pita crisps to offset all the sugar! This year is going to be a little bit different, since my girls always come back from trick or treating very excited and are on a sugar high for most of the night, one thing that will calm them down, even if only for a little while, is a Halloween craft.

This year we will be creating some awesome spirit jugs or what I like to call, ghostly jugs:


  • Clean plastic milk gallons (I used some juice and oil gallons since we are in Quebec where the milk is mostly in bags)
  • Black permanent marker
  • Craft knife
  • String of 50 clear low-wattage holiday lights (Christmas lights)

How To:

  1. Draw ghost eyes and mouths on the jugs
  2. Use the craft knife to cut a hole in the back of each jug
  3. Arrange the ghosts/jugs near each other and string the lights between them, stuffing several bulbs into each of the jugs

And voilà! A row of scary ghosts :)
