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:
Trim them off
Glue them onto...
bottles, cans, jars, actually any kind of containers... even wooden fruit crates! Then decoupage over the labels.
... and embellish with beads, jewelry and other trimmings.
The results are dressed up Halloween servers!
These recycled bottles can used for punch, juice, cider, water or whatever your choice beverage is.
I used an old button and twine on the neck of this bottle.
An amethyst and leather bracelet along with a broken pendent decorated this one.
I used an outdated necklace and strung some beads on this bottle.
Here are my other 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.
These bottles would look awesome with grape juice or red fruit punch in them.
This is so easy and fun that the whole family can get in on the crafting to decorate for your party.
I found my labels on Pinterest and I made a board of about 45 of them. If you want to grab these for yourself, here's the link ---> Halloween Labels.
I posted this early enough to get started before October in hopes to give you some ideas for decorating in plenty of time.
