Milk Jug Jack o Lanterns???

So a friend of mine shared this on facebook and I kinda want to try it this Halloween... Looks pretty easy and if done right it could turn out much better than the example that is posted (like those killer Jack o Lanterns that are basically works of art... except you don't have to worry about all that hard work rotting in a few weeks)

What you'll need

Clean plastic gallon milk jugs
Black permanent marker
Craft knife
String of 50 clear low-wattage orange holiday lights (or use any color you like)

Leave the caps on while you make these things, so the jugs don't dent and mess up your work.

So basically you draw whatever you wish on the jug (whether it be those silly pumpkin faces or some awesome work of art feel free to be as creative as you wish) on the jugs. 

Next take your craft knife and slice a nice sized hole in the back of your jug for the lights to be stuffed in (a half-dollar-size hole in the back of each jug should be big enough.)

Arrange several of your jugs near each other and string the lights between them, stuffing several bulbs into each of the jugs.
