One of the most fun projects I came across when I was researching 'upcycling' was turning your empty milk jugs into ghosts! The Bee thought this was the greatest idea ever and was very enthusiastic about getting them done. He's such a creative clever boy. And his numerous projects keep us quite entertained. Tonight he put up Halloween 'posters' on every surface he could reach. Did I mention he's very enthusiastic?
The Bug did a great job on his jug too and these goofy faces make us smile every time they light up!
(The Bug's jugs are on the left and The Bee's is on the far right - I did the much more boring ones in the middle)
You can google 'milk jug ghosts' if you want more instructions, but really, you draw on a face and make a hole in the back (or top) for lights to go in. Easy peasy.
*I did a presentation on 'upcycling' for our church 'frugal fair' in September. Upcycling is basically re-purposing something you may have thrown out or discarded.
I was going to do a post on it, but it's just one of those things I never got around to. There are some great sites on upcycling, etc. if you want to take a look, it can be a lot of fun. I may get back to it with a few more projects I found...
