. . . Juice Bottle Ghosts . . .

I buy Trop50 Orange Juice and I love the shape of the bottle.  I'm always brainstorming ideas on what I can do with them instead of tossing them out.  I decided to use up a few of my stash and make Ghosts for Halloween.  If I do say so myself I think they turned out really good.  My son just loved them when I put them out so anytime he is complimentary I know I'm on to something.
 You will need a Tropicana OJ Bottle or something similar
Spray Paint
Wood circles and ovals or something similar to create the face
Black Rafia
Mini Cupcake Liners
 Spray Paint your bottles-this took several coats
I purchased my bag of wood pieces at Michael's
I layed out all the faces prior to spray painting them black so I knew which pieces to use
 Once the pieces for the face dry use E6000 glue to adhere them to your bottles
Let them dry while laying flat or they will slip down the bottle--not pretty
Use a mini cupcake liner to cover the top of your bottle.  You'll want to cut little slits all around it so it folds neatly. 
Put a rubber band around the cupcake liner to hold in place while you wrap the bottle top with rafia ribbon.  Leave some "stringy" pieces for decoration
So much better than just tossing them out!
