Halloween Witch Crafts: Kids Milk Jug Pinata

Kids will go batty for this milk jug pinata! Made with Mod Podge and tissue paper! This Mod Podge project was designed for Plaid. Pop by my page at Plaid to see this project and tons more ideas!!!

Materials Needed:
FolkArt One Stroke Brushes - Script Liner, #1
FolkArt Artists Pigments - Pure Black
FolkArt Artists Pigments - Titanium White
FolkArt Metallics - Gunmetal Gray
Mod Podge Gloss
Filbert brush
Plastic milk/water jug (1 gallon)
Craft knife
Masking tape
Tissue paper - Lime Green
Foam paintbrush
Tacky Glue
Black felt square
One 2" Styrofoam ball
Two Googly eyes
Egg carton


1. Make sure the milk container is clean and dry before starting. Cut a U-shaped flap in the back of the milk jug with a craft knife (parents help with the knife).

2. Fill the jug with candy and tape the flap closed with a small piece of masking tape. This is just to hold the flap down as you add tissue paper, so you only need to use a little bit of tape.

3. Cut your tissue paper into small (roughly 2") squares and paste them to the jug with Mod Podge. Put as many or as few layers of tissue paper for your desired look, but be sure to cover the opening with two to three layers this will hold the flap down just enough so that the pinata will be able to burst open when hit. Allow the Mod Podge to dry thoroughly.

4. For hair cut jagged bangs into the felt and glue to the pinata (use the photo for placement reference).

5. Using the craft knife, slice the Styrofoam ball in half. Press your finger into the dome portion of the ball for the Googly eyes. Glue the eyes into the wells on the balls. Glue the eyes to the pinata.

6. Just above the eyes paint a scar across the forehead and a squiggle on the chin with Pure Black paint and a detail brush. Paint a squared mouth with the Pure Black paint using the larger brush. Paint teeth using the Titanium White paint.

7. Cut 2 egg sections from the egg carton. Paint them with the Gunmetal Grey paint. Glue to the sides of the head with tacky glue.

8. Using the tip of the craft knife. Poke a small hole in the top back of the pinata. Poke a second hole in the back of the pinata about 1" down from the top. Tape a long piece of yarn to a skewer and thread through the two holes. Tie a knot in the yarn to secure and hang.


  1. Oh my! This is something really very creative! Perfect for the Halloween.
