How To Make A Hanging Light For Your Campsite Using Plastic Cups

You’ve probably seen these lights in campgrounds. They are very popular around our part of the country. You can make them yourself quite easily. All you need are 9 oz. plastic cups, a stapler and a string of lights. You can also make them using a hole punch and zip ties. Make them in the way that works for you.

This is a fun activity for your camping kids. They will absolutely love making one of these hanging lights. These would even be great gifts for your kids to make for camping grandparents, etc.



Halloween Milk Jug Ghosts

Mommy and I made these Halloween milk jug ghosts to decorate our campsite for the Halloween season. This was a fun camping activity for me and a great way to decorate our campsite.

Cut a hole in the back of your milk jug to insert votive candles or string lights. (We used string lights.)

Draw faces on the front of the jugs with a black marker or use cut out faces make from black duct tape. We tried both ways.

Jack-O-Lantern Bucket Light

We put an orange bulb in our bucket light, then drew a jack-o-lantern face on it with a dry erase marker for Halloween. You can put anything on your bucket light with a dry erase marker. It wipes right off!

Halloween Milk Jug Ghosts

Mommy and I saved our milk jugs before Halloween to make these milk jug ghosts for campsite decorations during the Halloween season. You make them by cutting an opening in the back of the jug to stick votive candles or string lights into. Then, you draw faces with  black markers or cut faces out of black duct tape to stick on them. We tried both ways. It was a fun activity for me and a neat decoration for our Halloween campsite.
