I love the milk jug ghosts! My 3 year old goes through a lot of's a great way to make luminaries where the candle won't burn out and reuse those jugs, too.

My favorite is the bats from paper bags. So many fun uses for these little guys! Could use them as napkin rings or candy holders! Which project is your favorite? -Editor for AllFreeHolidayCrafts
