Talk about a way to recycle those empty milk and water jugs for a super craft idea this one is a great way to light up your walkway or porch for halloween and all you do is make the face,cut out hole in back and put string of lights. I would even maybe try those fake candles that flicker. I love this idea.

Our 3 boys and I started this about 3 years ago. As they have grown, so has their artwork. Every year, our "parade" grows to line the driveway. I finally found that the little battery powered tea lights work the best for us. Can't wait for this year.
