Go Green this Halloween!
Have you got your halloween costume yet? Halloween is tomorrow so we have pulled together a collection of last-minte, easy DIY crafts made from recycled materials. As if Halloween wasn’t already frightening enough, perhaps the scariest thing about Halloween is plastic waste. An estimated 2,000 tonnes of plastic waste (the equivalent to 83 million bottles) will be thrown away this Halloween. Instead of buying Halloween products from the high street, you can startle yourself with homemade creations made from your household waste.
Take a look at these creepy crafts guaranteed to get you into the spooky spirit…
1. WATER BOTTLE LEGO ZOMBIE

2. MILK BOTTLE GHOST LAMPS
Scare your neighbours with these up cycled milk bottle glowing ghost faces!
