Eco-Friendly Halloween Decorations

By happy • October 30th, 2017



Whether you’re hosting a party or looking for new decor, try doing an eco-friendly Halloween this year. Getting prepared for the festivities doesn’t mean you have to spend lots of money or produce holiday waste.  Instead of purchasing every Halloween decoration, try creating your own with items you already have in the house. We’ve put together a list of eco-friendly, upcycled and inexpensive ideas for you to try!

1. No Waste Pumpkin Carving
Instead of throwing the pumpkin insides away, roast the seeds and eat them as a snack or in a meal, and use the pulp for pies, muffins, and pancakes. After showcasing your pumpkins, compost them instead of throwing them in the garbage.

2. Spooky Bats[Source]

Get crafty and use egg cartons to make these cute bats! Paint them black and hang them around the house to create that Halloween ambiance.

3. Halloween Wreath[Source]

Welcome your guests with a fun and festive Halloween wreath! By using old brown paper bags, some glue and paint, you’ll greet them with authentic and personalized decor. Swap the Halloween theme for colourful leaves and you’ll have a wreath you can use all throughout fall.

4. Give books a new life[Source]

An alternative to buying a pumpkin is making one yourself! If you have any old books that are falling apart or missing pages, try turning them into pumpkins. Use them as centerpieces for parties, or place them around the house as autumn decor!

5. Spray paint wine bottles[Source]

Turn empty wine bottles into fun decor by painting them into something spooky. Display them outside your house or keep them inside for that extra seasonal touch!
