I don’t decorate much for Halloween. You won’t see our yard decked out like a graveyard or any zombies hiding behind trees. But I do have fond memories of my mom sticking paper cutouts on the door. That was back in the “good old days” before Halloween was such an event. Today I guess they’d be considered vintage Halloween decorations!

Vintage Halloween Decorations
I’ve been on the lookout for vintage Halloween decorations but they’re getting harder and harder to find. At least around here. But I did find this plastic Jack O’Lantern a few years ago. His painted features are a little faded but he still lights up! Even though the Occidental Collage pennant isn’t a Halloween decoration the colors are perfect for October. I made the felt banner and the doorknob photo holder myself. I’ll share those projects later this month.
Reproduction Halloween Decorations
Did you see the Country Living magazine this month? There was a whole article on vintage Halloween decorations that were made by the Beistle company! They still make many of these vintage styles.
These Halloween garlands and banners are all made by the Beistle company. I really like the tissue festooning and a few years back I made bracelets out of the barbed wire garland.
Here’s some of the black tissue festooning on my shelf at Paris Flea Market. I use it for filler in jewelry boxes and anywhere there’s a little blank space. Sorry it’s so dark. Seems like everything on my shelf is black this month! There are a few plastic skulls mixed in there, too. I’ll be sharing the before and after on that box sometimes this month, too.
These paper cutouts are are like the ones we had when I was growing up. I’m pretty sure we had the Jack O’Lantern one.
The monster mask garland reminds me of the plastic masks we used to wear as costumes.
