Reusable and recycled DIY Halloween decorations

by Ecofriend1874

Halloween is one of the few festivities that bring out the kid inside us. Homeowners like to decorate their home during this festival and make it look eerie or creepy according to taste. It takes a lot of efforts to decorate the home for Halloween, but most of the decorations go to the waste bins once the day passes. Wastage of resources is not a good idea as it causes unnecessary pollution. The traditional Jack-o-lanterns and spider webs cannot be recycled, but there are other elements that can be reused and recycled. In the following, you will find out best DIY decorations which can be recycled further.

As children, you have probably heard of a ghost with bulging eyes who roams the city streets. Bring back that demonical spirit by creating a unique door decoration with red yarn and white plate. Both these items can be put back to regular use. You don’t need to spend much for this decoration. Cut paper films and color them to resemble iris of a scary and bloody eye. Then stick the paper on the pack of the white plate. Stick the plate on the door with transparent tape. Tape the red yarn around it as if it is the bloody vein of the scary eye.
