Happy Monday! Only 3 more days till Halloween…anyone stuck on costume ideas?
This copy of Pack-O-Fun from October 1957 shares how to make your own masks from a simple paper bag and imagination. Quite a bit different from the $50 costumes purchased from the pop-up Halloween stores isn’t it?
Along the lines of simple vintage crafts, crepe paper was a go-to crafting and decorating staple. Inspired by this magazine, I crafted a simple pumpkin garland from vintage book paper (backed with cardboard), fringed black crepe and, of course, Stickles!
After outlining the features with Stickles, and once the glitter dried, I painted the insides with a black watercolor paint for more definition. Once everything dried, I taped crepe arms and legs to complete the body, and attached the three pumpkins to ribbon with tape.
A simple craft, but very festive!
