Halloween is coming up and instead of buying new plastic decorations that will be thrown away, why not reuse and decorate from objects you have around the house?
1.) Most people have some screens and maybe like me, I just replaced all my screens and this would be a great way to reuse screen. You could also use check-wire or even fabric. As far as the large Milk Container.. think buckets.
2.) This is so easy I could even do it. Large clear jugs with painted faces. If you don’t drink that much milk, check your neighbors trash cans.
3) A can of orange paint on a large lid, add a few pieces of metal and here you have hanging pumpkins made from junk around the house.
This is what they look like on an old bed frame. How cute is this!
4.) How easy is this! Clear Plastic bottle with green cap, filled with some type of orange paper or fabric, glued on eyes and how much more eco can you get?
5.) I don’t know one person who is sitting on books, they don’t read anymore. This easy carved book can be made into a pumpkin. Paint it or leave it natural, it still looks great.
6.) For those who have large tine or even cardboard, this easy Scarecrow or pumpkin if you prefer is made with buttons, a bit of felt, some string and an old hat. Use any time of leaves or limbs to achieve the scarecrow look.
7.) No no sweater pumpkins are very big on pinterest. Learn how here.
7.) One of my favorites! Who says Pumpkins have to be orange? What a great way to recycle old jeans and this very cute pumpkin can carry you through all year long. Learn how here
8.) Another so easy, I could do it! Large plastic bottle, paint orange, add green accents and black faces.
9.) Many people still may have an old lightbulb around the house. I actually found one on the beach, it you can believe that. Same concept, paint orange, add scraps of fabric and these cuties can be a ghoulish addition to your Halloween decor.
10.) Even if you don’t have a box, chances are there is one is someones trash. Or check your local stores and ask them for a box. This cardboard pumpkins might take you 15 minutes to make. Either cover with paper or paint orange, draw those eyes and mouth, stick a green toilet paper roll on the top and voila.. a very cut cardboard pumpkin. This is designated as a children’s project, so I would guess it would go for any age group.
11. No post would be the same without something in pallets. We have probably all seen the pumpkins made from pallets, but I like this. Less fuss, less cutting. Very cute and you reuse these pallets in a vertical garden.
