KIWI Eco-craft: Milk jug pumpkinMaterials

  • Gallon Milk Jug
  • Orange Paint
  • Glue
  • Black Permanent Marker or Construction Paper
  • Paint Brush


  1. Mix orange paint and glue together (about 1/4 cup glue to one cup of paint). This helps the paint stick to the container without any peeling.
  2. Paint the entire milk jug orange and let dry. Apply another coat of paint after first coat dries for a darker coat.
  3. After paint has fully dried you can decorate the milk jug with a pumpkin face using either a black permanent marker or cutting out pumpkin face pieces from black construction paper and gluing them on the jug.
  4. As an added effect, you can place a large flashlight behind the jug to shine through. Or place a smaller flashlight that stays lit inside the jug.
