Last Minute Halloween from the Recycling Bin

Posted on October 29, 2017 at 7:30 PM

Here are a few last minute Halloween decorations you can make with what's in your recycling bin!

Plastic Bag Pompom Pumpkins

Use orange (or orange and black) plastic grocery bags to create large pompom pumpkins. These will last forever (unfortunately).

Book Page Gourds

Have you already gone ahead and bought your pumpkins and gourds but have no time to carve and/or decorate them. Forget about it. Just tear some pages out of your old telephone books and slap these on with a bit of glue. Now that's gourd for you!!

Light Up the Night

Chinese lantern (physalis) pods make a wonderful display that you can keep up until Thanksgiving. Just insert the light bulbs of battery-powered string lights into each little seed pod and drape over a mirror.


Here's a nifty way to serve up Halloween treats for your kiddies. Empty your eggs, wash carefully, add a few treats then a witch hat and mask. A cracking good idea don't you think!

Potion Bottles

Grab a few bottles from the recycling bin and decorate with horrifying Halloween labels. You can find loads online or make your own. These are best for your grown-up parties.

Your recycling bin is truly a great source of inspiration.
