There is nothing better than recycling your household trash into a fun craft that you can keep and use over and over again. These 15 Halloween Milk Jug Crafts are just that.  I have compiled 15 of my favorite ones to share with you and inspire you to think again when it comes to tossing out that Milk Jug into recycling when you can take it and create a fun decoration for your home with the kids.

So what will you need to create these? Well some Clean Empty Milk Jugs also know as Gallon Milk Containers. Then depending on which design you are going for you made need some Paints, Foam Sheets, Google Eyes, Markers and other various Craft Supplies.

Get the kids involved in creating some masterpieces of their own using their imaginations to create fun Monsters, Jack O Lanterns, Ghosts and other fun creations.

Each one of the the design below are numbered and will have a link to the project for directions on how to create it. So have fun creating and recycling those Milk Jugs this Halloween. I hope you will be inspired by these as I was – I love them all, but my favorite has to be the Purple Monster pictured at the top left of this page – love him !!!

1. Monster Jug Heads – This is an adorable Jack O Lantern and a Fun Green Monster

2. Eerie Luminarias – Love these – Skeleton, Monster and of course the Cat all lit up down the steps.

3. Gourd O – now as you can see this is not a Milk Jug, but a Laundry Detergent Bottle – is that Clever or what?

4. Ghost Blood – I loved this one that is a Ghost made from a 1/2 Gallon Jug and labeled Ghost Blood as it sat on the table full of milk for the kids at a Halloween Party.
