An Altered Halloween….

In the interest of full disclosure, I am a Halloween junkie. I just love it! And, no, not the gory Halloween that has taken over today. I love the colors, the Fall weather, the simple coziness of it all. And, I think vintage Halloween graphics can be way spookier than any modern decor we see today. So, I am LOVING all of the cool ingredients included in the Halloween Banner kit. You’ve got ingredients to make banners from flashcards and Bingo cards, but also lots of materials to make cool cards, tags and embellishments.

This one-of a kind wall hang­ing began as a sim­ple, vin­tage, out of date, black slide pro­jec­tor wheel.  But when altered with the Vin­tage Hal­loween Ban­ner Kit, became some­thing entirely usable again as a sea­sonal home decor piece.

To cre­ate this wall-hanging, I began with a vin­tage flash card, which I trimmed with black/orange fes­toon, to cre­ate the base.  Then come the layers!

I cut  the vin­tage treat bag into a cir­cle, and lay­ered it over the vin­tage, orange,  scal­loped cir­cle. Back before paper-crafting became pop­u­lar, I think this served as a coaster! Stick­les, a mini tag tied off with a vin­tage but­ton, and a spooky warn­ing cre­ate the rest of the back­ground. The lit­tle pump­kin man sits on top hold­ing a sign.

A pump­kin sticker embell­ishes a vin­tage game card, again trimmed with stick­les. I then lay­ered the card over a large black tag. Vin­tage sheet music peeks out from behind, and a creepy plas­tic spi­der nes­tles among the festooning.

The sharp contrast in colors really makes this eye-catching.

So, if you’re looking for something a little more unique in Halloween decor, consider an altered Halloween. Seems like the perfect time to create  something a little out of the ordinary!

Have a great week!
