Create a Frankenstein trick-or-treat jug to

Design a rain-proof candy trick-or-treat jug to match your Halloween costume: a black cat jug for a witch or a treasure chest for a pirate.

What You'll Need:

Plastic milk jug

Scissors

Permanent markers

Black felt

Craft glue

Fabric markers

Two screws

Brass paper fasteners

With an adult's help, cut off the top half of a plastic milk jug. Set it aside.

Decorate the bottom half of the milk jug to make a trick-or-treat basket. Use markers to draw on a Frankenstein face.

Cut a strip of black felt for his hair. Glue it to the basket.

Have an adult poke two holes near the bottom of the basket. Insert a screw in each hole for Frankenstein's bolts.

Cut two small pieces of felt. Glue them over the ends of the screws on the inside of the basket.

Cut a 1-inch-wide strip from the top half of the jug. Punch holes in the handle ends and the sides of the basket. Use brass paper fasteners to attach the handle to the basket.
