Vintage Halloween

This weekend I decided to make some Halloween decorations
I gathered up my ribbons, paper and tags
and downloaded a few vintage
Halloween postcards.
I cut out the images of the postcards,
which were printed in color on regular
copy paper.
Then I used the tag as a template and cut out 
scrapbook paper the size of the tags
I glued the image to the Halloween paper,
then glued them both to the tags.
Finally, I hole punched the top of the tag 
and added ribbons!

I used them as ornaments to decorate my 
Halloween Tree.
Along with some spiders and garland
from the dollar store.
And ghost & orange lights I had on hand 
from last year.
I big Boo bow at the top and we're done!
Here are the images if you want to use them too:




It rained five inches in one day here on Saturday/Sunday
so I had to wait until today to take the tree out to the porch.

Later this week I'll show you the Halloween table
and then this weekend the decorated buffet.

  7. So happy to see your tree...I agree, great minds do think alike. We'll tell ourselves that anyway. We must be kindred spirits at the very least! I have so enjoyed pinning theses cards and like you, think they make great ornaments for a Halloween tree. Your tree is perfect! Happy you visited so I can follow along now.
