Supplies Needed: Crayola Acrylic Paint, Crayola SuperTips Markers, Crayola Glitter Glue, Crayola Paint Brush, Upcycled Plastic Jug, Battery-Operated Lights

  • 1.

    Ask an adult to help make a hole in the back of an upcycled plastic jug under the handle. It should be large enough to fit the battery pack of the string lights.

  • 2.

    On the front of the jug, use Crayola SuperTips to outline a spooky, ghoulish face.

  • 3.

    Fill in the design with black Crayola Acrylic Paint. Once the paint is dry, add a second coat of paint for full coverage.

  • 4.

    When the second coat of paint has dried, outline your grinning ghoul with Crayola Glitter Glue. Let dry overnight.

  • 5.

    Place your battery-operated lights inside the jug and turn them on to illuminate your spooky lantern.
