Jack-O-Lanterns

I found a cute Halloween craft here.

I changed it up a bit and we ended up with these
Here is how we did it...

I mixed a little water with white glue (just to dilute a little) and Miles painted it onto the milk jug with a foam brush.
We applied orange tissue paper. By the way, do you have any idea how hard it is to find orange tissue paper? After 4 stops I learned that Hobby Lobby has it.
Let that dry.
Smear glue all over the table while mom cuts out face shapes from construction paper.
Glue those on.
I do plan to cut the backs out and put in Christmas lights like they did, but I haven't made it up to the attic yet for them.

That's it, enjoy!

I am going to make the ghost versions of these and I just need to find the jugs. I was looking for orange tissue paper for a craft and ended up using a thin orange plastic table cloth from the dollar store. Worked great!
