Time to start saving your milk jugs! Repurpose your empty milk jugs and turn them into Pumpkins. The little Trick-Or-Treaters liked looking at all the different faces and the parents loved the idea. It's a fun evening project for the whole family!


  • Milk Jug - washed
  • Tea-light Candles
  • Sharpies
  • Razor Blade or X-Acto Knife

*** For Safety...Please do not let your babies or young children use the Razor Blade or X-Acto Knife**

Use your permanent makers to draw faces on the front of you milk jug.

On the back side, cut three side. This will leave you a door and opening to inside the milk jug.

Place a tealight candle inside each one and shut the door so the flame doesn't go out. We used tealights candles, but I am sure if you want to use the LED Tealights candles (battery) they should light up the pumpkins just as good. Please visit our website for step by step instructions and more creative ideas for the fall and upcoming holiday's. Happy Crafting!!
