Ghost Milk Jug

edited October 2011 in General
My Granddaughter and I made these on Saturday. Fun and quick to make. The orginial directions show using a black sharpie for the face but we decided to make our own faces and cut them out of vinyl.

Directions: Clean gallon milk jug, cut and add faces to jug, cut small hole in back and put a 20 or 35 strand of mini-lights. So easy to make.

Attached are the photos not lite and one lite. Also attached is the MTC 4.04 file for the faces. The file is setup on a Silhouette SD Mat 12" x 8.5".

Have fun making them.

    Veronika - There is no way to describe the Ballon Fiesta. I'm glad they at least had good weekends. Glad you got to be there. And, the special shapes and the ballon glow are so neat.

    Did you see the snow on the mountains on the 8th? It was a surprise to everyone in Albuquerque. I took photos that morning and and posted them on my Facebook.

    We had a great time making them. The only down fall was that I ended up in the hospital Saturday evening do to fainting and be out for at least 3 minutes. Didn't get out until late Sunday evening. But that's okay - we had a fun time with it along with the Great Grandson. He loved them.

    yes Penny that was a beautiful site we had taken the Tram up the mountain the evening before and it was really cold up there. We stayed at a Comfort Inn not far from all the tourist stuff lol. I also loved the Zoo and Gardens...what a bargain that was! Oh also went to Sandia Casino.

    Hope you won some money at the casino. We live very close to the base of the mountain and have a pretty good view of the city at night. The lights are so beautiful to look at. Glad you had a great time visiting Albuquerque.

    What a great idea! I am going to have the kids make a couple tonight. Gotta grab the milk jugs out of the recycle box. I'm glad I saw this now, pick up is tomorrow! TFS!

    Thanks everyone. These are also so easy to hang. Just punch a hole thru each side of the jug right below the cap/neck. Make a hook for handing by adding wire and twisting into a hook. You also could thread fishing line thru the holes and hang the jug.
