Create a Witch Windsock Using Hiland Milk Jugs
I hope you’ve been saving your Hiland Dairy Milk gallon jugs, because fall crafting is about to get exciting! Check out this adorable witch windsock you can make with a few crafting supplies and a repurposed milk jug. It’s super cute and easy!
What You’ll Need:
- Hiland Dairy Milk jug
- Green spray paint
- Black plastic tablecloth
- Black permanent marker
- Large googly eyes
- Glue gun
- Glue sticks
- Tacky glue
- Red acrylic paint
- Scissors or craft knife
- Witch’s hat
- Clear fishing line
- Orange ribbon (optional)
- Rinse jug and remove label with warm soapy water. Allow to dry completely.
- Spray paint entire jug. Allow to dry completely, at least 24 hours.
- Cut several strips from the tablecloth.
- Tip: I made my strips approximately 12 inches long and 1/2 inch wide.
- Cut off 1/2 inch of the milk jug handle at the top, near the opening. Then cut a round hole for the mouth.
- Turn the milk jug upside down and draw eyes, eyebrows and warts using a black permanent marker.
- Glue the googly eyes inside your eye shapes. Allow to try completely.
- Using a glue gun, adhere the tablecloth strips to the bottom of the milk jug to create hair. Allow to dry completely.
- Tip: I cut the strips at varying lengths after gluing them on the milk jug to create a hairstyle for my witch.
- Paint red lips around the mouth opening. Allow to dry completely.
- Glue the witch’s hat on top of the “hair.” Allow to dry completely.
- Tie fishing line to the top of the hat.
- Hang in a tree and be the envy of the neighborhood!
Add a few orange ribbon strips to the witch’s hair for a pop of color.
