  • Autumn leaves or shredded paper
  • Black paint and brush or thick black texta


  • Take the plastic bag and fill it with the leaves or the shredded paper
  • Draw a scary face on the bag, 2 eyes, a nose and a scary mouth!
  • Tie a knot in the top of the bag
  • Pop outside on the front porch or in the garden. make lots of little ones and line the path to your front door. Welcome the trick or treaters

How easy was that? You've tidied up your leaves and re-purposed the plastic bags into recycled Halloween decorations!

After Halloween empty your leaves into a compost pile, put back on the ground to rot down and enrich your garden or take to your local tip and put it in their garden waste. Don't throw the plastic bags away either, re-use them for something else!
