Jack O' Lantern Jug

Living Green
Light up your holiday decor with this delightful Jack O' Lantern!

What You'll Need:
-Empty Milk jug
-Orange, Black & Green Acrylic paint
-Mod Podge
-String of Lights

The how to:
-Rinse out jug with soap and water. Let it dry.

- Paint jug orange, and the top where cap screws on green. Turn upside down and allow to dry then give another coat of paint. Handel carefully. Paint will come off easily. Touch up any spots where paint has come off.

-Paint the face on the jug using the black paint.

-When dry, paint a generous amount of Mod Podge over painted jug. (For some added sparkle mix some fine glitter with the Mod Podge when painting) Balance upside down and let dry completely.

-Tie some Raffia around the top of jug and stuff some lights inside the through the opening in the top.

Make several of these Jugs and line you front porch or walkway with these Fun Jack O' Lanterns this Halloween!
