Recycled Halloween Decorations -Leafy Souls Vegan Blog Post

We all love Halloween decorations, but we don't always love their price tag. That's where ideas for recycling projects come in. Find out how to turn trash into treasure with this Go Green for Halloween: 25 Halloween Recycling Crafts collection!  Not only will these recycle craft ideas help you celebrate without breaking the bank, but they'll also help you reduce waste by repurposing items from your trash and recycling bins. It doesn't get much better than that.

Egg Carton Jack o’ lanterns

Tools

  • green paper
  • green (or brown) pipe cleaner
  • orange paint
  • egg carton (2 cups per pumpkin)
  • scissors
  • glue (not pictured)
  • paintbrush (not pictured)
  • black marker (not pictured)

Method

  1. Cut your egg cups off of the egg carton.
  2. Take 2 egg carton cups & paint the outside with orange paint. Let it dry.
  3. Poke a small hole in the top of one of the cups.
  4. Cut a piece of the pipe cleaner that is 2 inches long & fold it in half.
  5. Twist the ends...leaving the top a loop.
  6. Place glue on the edges of one of the cups.
  7. Glue the cups together & allow to dry. Place the pipe cleaner in the hole on the top. Draw a face on the pumpkin using a marker.
  8. Cut a leaf out of the green paper & glue it on & there you have a cute Jack-0-Lantern.

Bat Rolls

The bats are super easy to make. Just start saving your empty toilet paper rolls and be on the lookout for some super-cute scrapbook paper. Then you just need a little black craft paint, some glue (I think Glue Dots work best!) and eye stickers — or you can just draw them on with a white paint pen which you will also need to draw on the mouth.   

Use double-sided paper for the bat wings so that they looked extra cute from all directions. These bats can be worn on your kid’s wrist so they can make the bats fly by running around. Look online for a shape of bat wings that you like and draw them and cut into a template.

Next, fold a small flap at the end of the wing. This is where you will put your glue dots so that you can stick them to the toilet paper roll body. Putting-the-bat-together. Add the wings on both sides, add little bat ears (just cut small triangles of scrap paper!) and then create a super-cute face for your bat.

Halloween painted candle jars

Adding a glimmer of light to your projects will not only make your house stand out in the dark, but it’ll add a different element of spook if adorned with the right colours. Recycle holiday lights from the winter for the fall Halloween holiday by placing lights inside pumpkins, jars and other glass holders that you may have in the kitchen. 

By using white lights, you can change its final illuminated colour if you paint mason jars red, orange, purple or green. Trying adding scary faces to your jars (by using a permanent marker or paper cut-outs) to mimic the look of a jack-o’-lantern.
