I'm Lisa and I'm the leader of Junior Girl Scout Troop and Brownie Troop.  I wanted to share a "twist" we added to the 2 liter "Jack-o-lantern" project for our older Junior Girls.

Turning the 2 liter bottle upside down, the girls painted the top (outside of the bottle) and about 2 inches down ,black. we then added green tempra paint to cover the inside of the bottle. we glued on 2 empty thread spools (painted black) towards the bottom of the bottle.

The girls added pre cut "Frankenstein" pieces to the bottle ( eyes, scar, etc).  They tied black raffia to the bottom to make a bow.  These made the coolest Frankensteins ever, and the bottom of the bottle kind of looks like a brain anyway...LOL.  Hope you share this, its a nice companion piece to the jack-o-lanturn, but for older girls!
