Ghosts, werewolves, and witches…OH MY! Halloween is quickly approaching, so you might have already started decorating with cobwebs, monsters, and mummies. If you want to think outside of the cauldron, you can make an easy ghost decoration with old milk cartons and Christmas lights.

What you need:

  • Empty plastic milk cartons
  • Black sharpie marker.
  • White string Christmas lights
  • Sharp knife.


  • One: Rinse and dry out your empty milk cartons.
  • Two: Draw faces on the front of the cartons with the Sharpie marker.
  • Three: Cut large holes in the back of the cartons for the lights to fit in.
  • Four: Separate the lights among the cartons and plug them in for your ghostly enjoyment.

Wishing you all a Happy Halloween!
