Simple Milk Jug Crafts

Tips And Ideas For Milk Jug Crafts…

Did you know that the plastic milk bottles, which you throw away, could make you a breathtaking "The Big Mouth Easter Bunny Basket"?

  • Get a clean milk gallon and then draw a big orifice on the side of the milk jug opposite the handle.
  • Cut out the mouth and paste white cotton balls individually on the jug. Cover up the slashed rim of the mouth.
  • Draw out the facial features on a construction paper. When the cotton balls are dried, put the ears, nose (with colored cotton balls) and other features as you wish the bunny to be.
  • Add a bow on the head if you want a girl bunny.
  • The last step is to make it chew grass!

Fun with Milk Jug crafts

If it's Halloween time how about a Milk Jug Jack-o-Lantern?

  • First sketch out a face you want on the milk jug.
  • Cut out the ears, eyes etc.
  • Paint the body of the jug with thick layers. Then smear the features with a black marker.
  • Finally you can pop in a flashlight for a lantern that would be safe for children.

Plastic Milk Jug Whale Craft is a simple craft to make...

  • Mark out the shape of the mouth at the bottom of the milk jug.
  • Poke in a hole so that a scissor can be inserted.
  • The hacked mouthpiece is used as the fin of the whale.
  • Following this you must slash two slits in the screw top so that you will be capable to slot in the fin.
  • After carving out a shape on the cut mouthpiece, cut along the sketch and then add the fin into the two slits you made on the milk jug and fasten it in place.
  • With a black maker give shape to the whale.

Milk Jug Crafts can scare you too!

Your blood might go cold, if you suddenly discover a glowing skeleton hanging around.

  • To make "Mr. Bones", gather 8 or 9 clean, plastic gallon jugs, string, scissors, craft knife, glue gun and one-hole punch.
  • For the head, get a jug with a pair of circular grooves opposite the handle and twist it upside down.
  • Make the face, akin to a skeleton and also slit into two holes through the skull for hanging.
  • Slice a perpendicular incision down the center of a right-side-up jug (straight opposite the handle). This is the chest for the carcass and then cut out the ribcage.
  • Glue both parts together and make the rest of the body parts separately. Paste them one after another.
  • For the hip, slash all the way around a jug, about 4-1/2 inches up from the base. Seize the foot piece and trim away a small smile outline from each side to make a four-cornered profile.
  • Punch holes in two conflicting corners. Cut eight parts resembling the bones of the arms and legs.
  • Tie them through a string drawn through the holes made in the ends of the bones. Get ready to thrill!
