*Milk Jug Ghost*


I was emptying my milk carton the other day and figured I could put it to good use as a Halloween decoration. I quickly grabbed the sharpie and black acrylic paint. This took me about five minutes to complete. I painted the pink top of the milk carton black, to match better. I then took my black sharpie and made a scary/creepy/happy face? I am not to sure what I was going for, but it works! On Halloween I will insert a glow stick or flicker light, so it will light up in the dark!
