. . . Juice Bottle Ghosts Revisited . . .

This post was one of my most popular Halloween Crafts last year so I thought we'd revisit it again.  These Juice Bottle Ghosts have to be one of the easiest things to make and they turn out so cute!  Here we go...

• • •
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:
 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 the empty bottles out, don't you think?


  1. what a great idea! I absolutely love random things (like juice bottles) turn into super cute things!! very creative!love it!

  2. These are just too cute for words!
    Brilliant idea

  3. I love this idea! How did you remove the labels from the bottles? I still have sticky residue left on my bottles & rubbing alcohol isn't cutting it. Thanks again for the idea!

    1. Michelle, thank you so much. I always use GooGone to remove sticky residue. It is great stuff and always works well. These bottles did have stubborn labels so it took quite s bit of GooGone to clean them completely. Good luck and hope your ghosts turn out great.

  4. Love the fact that youre being green!! :) You should enter your photos from this project into Craftbaby's Halloween Decor Challenge! :)
