Halloween will be very different this year due to the pandemic, so it’s the perfect time to enjoy decorating your house – something kids will love!
Lots of people are choosing to put up Halloween-themed characters and pumpkins in their windows to encourage kids to spot them. This is a great activity if they’re not able to participate in trick or treating due to lockdown restrictions or social distancing!
I’ve found some beautiful earth-friendly Etsy Halloween picks to get you in the creepy autumnal mood! They’re all zero-waste and plastic-free for the planet, so hope you like them as much as I do…
This felted pumpkin flying on a broomstick is a cute adornment that you can bring out every Halloween! Its smiley face means that it looks so friendly and the whole family will love it.
