Halloween is right around the corner, which means you’ve probably already brought down all your decorations from the attic or garage. It won’t be long before you decide to take a late night cruise and admire your neighbors’ gaudy decorations in all their glory. In fact, you might even have a few of your own blow-up decorations scattered across a lawn buried in colorful leaves.
There’s nothing quite like grinning jack-o’-lanterns, scarecrows, and signs warning visitors they may never be the same after leaving your home. It’s spooky and delightful all wrapped up in one.
Therefore, we’ve decided to share some of our favorite eco-friendly Halloween decorations. These projects are easy to do and you’ll feel better knowing you made them yourself. Super awesome.
