I’m not sure what it is about Halloween that causes us to try a little harder to recycle or repurpose something. I didn’t set out looking for it, and I didn’t even realize it until I had finished the collection, but this round-up contains a large number of spooky crafts made by repurposing. Maybe it’s the spookiness of turning something into something it’s not, or maybe it’s just that so many Halloween things lend themselves to it. Whatever the reason, I say keep it up.
