Eddie’s Collection of Junk: Halloween Favors Cheney, WA style!

November 7, 2013

Halloween for 2013 has come and gone but that is okay.  I want to share some items I found in Eddie’s ” Collection of Junk,” before I continue on with more from her pile of stuff.  They are Halloween napkins and decorations.  They have survived and are probably about 90+ years old, maybe even older.  My Aunt Eddie was a craftswoman as you will come to see.

The next two Halloween Decorations are made of black construction paper and are rather hardy.  The bat has a good ten inches wingspan.  The Owl is about six inches high and 5 inches wide.

This party favor is quite clever, using black construction paper, a pipe cleaner and crepe paper.  The face is very well done.  It could be a cut out.

This napkin is regular sized and was extremely fragile and difficult to scan without tearing it.  Can you believe it lasted 90+ years.  The decorations wrap around the napkin over 2/3rds of it and are quite involved.
