How To Make Easy Milk Carton Halloween Ghosts

How To Make Milk Carton Halloween Ghosts

You don't have to own a glue gun to be creative this Halloween. In this post, we show you how to make easy milk carton Halloween Ghosts. They are effective and take five minutes to put together. What's even better is there's absolutely no mess involved.

What you'll need:


  • Empty milk cartons (the BIG ones are best!)
  • Glow sticks*
  • Black sharpie or marker pen
  • How To Make Them:

    Clean those empty milk cartons out and let them dry out completely.

    Use your marker pen to draw on a spooky face - you can make it as scary as you like!

    Activate your glow sticks by cracking them and pop a few in each milk carton.

    Now, switch off the lights and pop them in your window for a spooktacular Halloween display.
