Creating Your Vintage Hallowe'en

The folklore, traditions, and some crafty makes

Full of spooky artworks, ephemera, vintage-inspired makes, rhymes, and stories, Creating your Vintage Hallowe’en celebrates the folklore and traditions surrounding this delightfully unique holiday.

Creating your Vintage Hallowe’en is packed full of little-known facts about the origins of Hallowe’en customs such as bobbing for apples and carving lanterns out of pumpkins, while the charming makes and vintage artworks featuring chubby, red-cloaked witches, sleekly silhouetted black cats, cute kittens, cheery goblins, and smiling spectres, will inspire you to have your own vintage-style Hallowe’en celebration.
