IT’S ECO-FRIENDLY FRIDAY!
Around my house, the countdown to Halloween has begun. The kids are figuring out their costumes and clamoring to decorate the yard. We’ve all seen the aisles of plastic Halloween decorations in every store we go to. Yes, they look cool and creepy, but do we need them? Not really, when farmer’s markets and produce stands have pumpkins, gourds, and corn stalks in abundance right now. Why not use those to decorate your home instead? First, you’ll be supporting local farmers and growers. Second, it’s all natural and decomposable. Nothing there that’ll sit in a landfill for years when you’re done with it.
Not spooky enough for you? Have you ever seen a snake gourd? Let me tell ya, they are cool and you can use paint or a Sharpie to make those things as timid or scary as you want.
Just to get you in the mood, here are some photos I took last year. The snake gourds aren’t mine ~ those are courtesy of amazon.com.
