Halloween is just around the corner and if you’re planning a party… I’ve got some recycling ideas to make your serving table funny and spooky! By using bottles, jars and cans, with glued on labels and other embellishments, you can make Halloween table decor much more fun!
Check this out:
bottles, cans, jars, actually any kind of containers… even wooden fruit crates! Then decoupage over the labels.
These recycled bottles can used for punch, juice, cider, water or whatever your choice beverage is.
Here are my other funny spooky containers.
A can wrapped with the “Scarecrow Stuffings” label and twine glued on is awesome for pretzel rods, lolly pops, twizzlers, etc.A painted peanut butter jar decorated with rope and an old clip on earring can hold m&ms, candy corn or other treats.
And a spice jar with a satin ribbon tied on can hold tiny candies… like cinnamon buttons.
This cut bottle has “Bat Wings” for a label. It could hold tortilla chips or jerky. The olive jar is labeled with “Eye of Newt” and would be fun with chocolate chips in it.
And the salsa jar is recycled into a “Dried Rat Tails” container… maybe some small pretzel sticks would be funny!
There are so many different types of containers to use for decor too. You can try salad dressing bottles to make “potions”; ketchup and mustard containers, jam and jelly jars, coffee creamer bottles, and even wicker baskets to hold popcorn, etc.
The ideas are endless.
