|Our creepy Headless Photo Card
has the look of an antique cabinet card photograph -- minus a head or
two. To mimic an antique leatherette frame, we show you how to get the
look with cardboard, wax paper, ink and your iron. You get TWO vintage
photos and Halloween messages to choose from.
|Meow!! The Black Cat Figure arches his back by the light of the full Halloween moon in this magical stand-up scene. You can assemble it in a twinkling with foamcore board and these enchanting vintage images.|
|This colorful Halloween Candy Bowl answers the question: What can I make out of an old fish bowl, now that Gerty the Goldfish has gone to her maker? Crepe paper decoupage on the inside is the secret behind the shimmery autumn colors.|
|A great Halloween Tree starts with an ugly, twisted and very dead branch. Then it gets "potted" in a hand-cast and painted plaster base that will be a family heirloom - if yours is anything like the Addams family.|
|Make a Halloween Witch Ornament that combines the Victorian sensibilities of vivid imagery and fanciful ornamentation. This simple ornament has a few "secret" ingredients that will make you a wizard of ornament crafting.|
|Hang a Halloween Clown Ornament with all the trimmings of a old-time Halloween parade. Cute to beat the band, this craft is simple enough for children and classy enough to hang on your front door.|
|Here's a Halloween Pumpkin Ornament with a surprise - a black cat popping out of a Jack o'Lantern. The other surprise is how easy it is to make. Just four ingredients and you have an instant antique.|
|A jaunty Halloween Chenille Figure makes a great ornament for your Halloween tree, table decoration, or lapel pin. Choose the black cat or the Jack O'Lantern, and make them for your friends!|
|Our Halloween Treat Basket is a personal-size, trick-or-treat party essential. The technique is Victorian paper-weaving with an aged paper treatment that begins with a single brown paper bag. Fringed with black crepe paper, this is a design reminiscent of the 1890s.|
|This Halloween Luminary is incredibly easy to make with a few materials, but the results are spectacular. Vintage Halloween images by Ellen H. Clapsaddle flicker and dance with a single votive candle.|
|"Ten Vintage Halloween Greetings to Make" is a 34-page e-book with ready-to-print vintage images, complete instructions and card-making tips! This is a must-have handbook for handmade Halloween cards that deliver a vintage punch. Pop ups, window cards, shakers, paper tole, vellum overlays and many more techniques!|
|Make your own 3-D Halloween Card using a simplified paper tole technique. Paper tole is the art of constructing three-dimensional pictures by cutting and layering elements from identical images. Ours uses only two layers, but the effect is magical.|
|Our Halloween Pop Up Card is a simple version of the intricate Victorian pop up cards of yore. Like its Victorian cousins, this card uses cut out "scraps" from several cards to create a lively 3-D scene of a flying witch heading for the moon.|
|This Padded Pumpkin Card mixes paper craft with no-sew fabric quilting, for a soft-to-the-touch three-dimensional effect. We love how the inside pumpkin bulges through the cut-out window on the cover.|
