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.
