Instructions:

  1. Use a black marker to draw your ghost face onto the milk jug.
  2. Paint eyes and mouth with black acrylic paint and allow to dry.
  3. Paint highlights on eyes by dipping the paint brush handle end into white acrylic paint. Dot onto each eye.
  4. On back lower portion of jug, draw a 2 1/2 to 3-inch diameter circle and cut out to create a hole.

I would empty the jug, then paint eyes on it and a mouth with black marker, and then affix a white fabric to the bottom of the jug so that it trails in the wind. Then you can attach the 'ghost' to your porch or whatnot to have a fun Halloween decoration
