Giving your home a spooky spruce for Halloween doesn’t have to involve a trip to the big-box store. To help you reduce waste and save money this season, Earth911 rounded up 12 creative decor ideas made from waste items you already have at home. Free decor with less waste? Sounds like a win-win to us!
1. Glass jar ghosts
Dreamed up by blogger Linda Braden of Mason Jar Crafts Love, these adorable glass jar ghosts are sure to compliment any Halloween decor scheme. As an added bonus, they take mere minutes to make and are virtually free!
Get step-by-step instructions on how to make these yourself at Mason Jar Crafts Love.
Earth911 Tip: Braden bought polystyrene disks from the dollar store to complete her project, but you can also repurpose packing material to keep your project zero-waste. And don’t restrict yourself to Mason jars either! Glass jars from your recycling bin will work just as well.
