Eggshell Ghost Mobile and Other Halloween Crafts

Looking for a Halloween craft that doesn’t involve a bunch of junky plastic?

Let nature be your inspiration.

This eggshell ghost mobile from The Magic Onions looks both simple and fun for kids to make, and since you’re basically making these ghosts from your breakfast trash, I think it counts as upcycling, as well!

And after Halloween, there will be little waste to dispose of; even with their marker decorations, those eggshells can still be crushed and dug into your garden beds.

Looking for more eco-friendly, budget-friendly Halloween crafts? Check out the 15 projects below!

1. altered book. Leave these super creepy altered books just lying around and looking suspicious.

2. apple-stamped Jack-o-lanternIt’s fun and easy to turn an apple into a pumpkin.

About the Author

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now. Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life; my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties; and my for links to articles about poverty, educational politics, and this famous cat who lives in my neighborhood.
