Fireplace Ghosts

Hello friends!  Thanks for stopping by.  Here's a quick and fun project I made for Halloween.  I saw this on Pinterest and immediately started saving my plastic one-gallon milk and water containers.

  I guess I should've waited till night time to take the photos so you could see them glowing, but you get the idea.
 I made the faces, free-hand style, using a black Sharpie.  I cut a small hole in the back of each container so I could insert the battery operated tea light candles.   


  1. I love it!! So creative and fabulous!! What an awesome re-use of milk and water containers!! Have a great day :)
