Top 5 Halloween Milk Jug Crafts!

There’s just something about Halloween that makes me want to get crafty!! Last night I showed you a simple way to reuse your old milk cartons with my DIY Spooky Milk Jug Ghosts and it made me wonder what other wonderful things we could make with our left over milk cartons. If you’re family is anything like mine, you probably have at least 2 or 3 new empty cartons a week. So why not do something fun with them?!

I spent a little time scouring the internet for milk jug crafts and found some I thought you might like to try too! So, I’m going to show you the top 5 Halloween milk carton crafts that I found. Just be warned, some of these crafts are a bit more difficult than others BUT they are all worth a try!! Just click the links provided and you will be taken directly to the DIY instructions for each project.

Get your jugs ready! Here we go……..

1) I’m a Texas native which pretty much translates into “I celebrate everything with a Piñata”. So, my first pick for the best Halloween milk jug crafts goes to: Frankie Piñata by Cathie & Steve on

2) Nothing says Halloween like a huge black spider. That’s why this Spooky Spider milk jug project fits perfectly on the list! This project is simple but you will need some materials that you may not have on hand. All of the instructions can be found on the Disney Family Fun blog.

3) This is probably one of my favorite milk jug crafts just because it’s so cute! I would love to have this sitting in the middle of my table if I was having a Halloween party! Look at these adorable Mummy Candy Holders from Parents Magazine (via Grace Dioguardo).

4)  Here is another great candy holder idea. This milk jug Vampire Candy Holder project comes from the Kids Craft Activities blog. This DIY is simple and great to make with the kiddos!

5) Last but not least are this homemade milk jug lanterns. This is a project that is perfect for kids of any age. Even your youngest kid can get in on this fun! All you need is a milk jug, a marker, Christmas lights, and scissors! Parents, just do the cutting before you hand the project over to your little ones! Head over to Kiwi Crate for instructions.

All of these crafty milk jug projects look like fun! The hardest part is going to be deciding which one to do first!
