With Halloween coming up, the amount of plastic and waste we see with decorations can be crazy, the cost and disposal is even worse. We've put together just a few ideas that you can either upcycle what you have or DIY. Let's take a look...
1. Yarn Pumpkins
Starting off with some good ol' pumpkin love, these cute DIY yarn pumpkins just require a few bis and bobs. grab yourself some wool, PVA glue, some balloons & a paint brush.
