Halloween may be full of spooky tricks and things that go bump in the night, but when it's all over and everyone has had their fill of fun and candy, there's something even scarier to face: waste! As with any holiday, waste is rampant on Halloween. Just think about all those pumpkins and single-use plastics that end up in the trash. Luckily, there's an easy way to be festive and treat the planet with love while still having plenty of Halloween fun. This year, consider transforming your empty 100% recycled Nellie's Free Range Egg cartons into these scarily cute mini jack o' lanterns that you can decorate your home, entryway, or porch with again and again as the years go by. There are no tricks involved; just a little bit of paint, tissue paper, some pipe cleaners, and glue. No magic spells needed, either. Just bring your crafting skills and creativity!
You'll need two egg "cups" from empty Nellie's Free Range Egg cartons to make a single jack o' lantern, so before you start, grab enough cartons to make as many jack o' lanterns as you'd like. To string them into a garland, for example, you may need at least two egg cartons. Next, choose your paint colors. Keep it simple by going with orange or mix things up by creating a purple, orange, and green color scheme. It's up to you! Grab the rest of the supplies below, then follow the instructions to assemble your mini jack o' lanterns.
