FREE HALLOWEEN CLIP ART-

 I love vintage and retro images.
Today I thought I would share some of my favorite
vintage Halloween clip art with you!
 
 
 
 
These two vintages beauties are postcards
dating back to the 1920's.
 
 
 
This little witchy lady below reminds me
of a Norman Rockwell-esque style painting.
She is a cutie!
 
 
 
Vintage Halloween clip art has such a playful
and innocent look to it.
 
 
 
 
 
 
It's hard to imagine that back in the day
when these images were created,
that there was no photo or art editing software.
 
It was simply an artist and his talent!
 
 
These are just a few of my favorite Halloween clip art images.
Please feel free to click and save them to your computer!
 
 
Thanks for stopping by- Pam
 

HALLOWEEN DECOR- HANDMADE FOR THE HOME

 
Halloween has fast become one of those holidays that isn't
just about the trick or treating, but has more to do with all the ways
you can decorate(or as I like to say, "dec-create") your home!
 
In my front hall hangs one of my most favorite handcrafted pieces,
a happy Halloween wool banner!
While easy to make-
 it also makes a great statement!
 


 
 
Here I designed and created a cute little pumpkin pillow.
This wool pillow is fun and while it was made
for the Halloween season, it would work in
your home décor right through Thanksgiving!
 

 
 Another great handcrafted addition to our Halloween décor is this table runner.
 
 
 
This year I branched out of my comfort zone
of working with wool and sewing to try something new!
 
I created this vintage-inspired Halloween clock!
The clock began its life as a simple and non-descript country style clock.
(Before and after photos can be seen at the end of this post)
I happen to think it turned out phenomenal!
This vignette is one of my favorites and also includes another
one of my signature wool banners!
 

 
One of the things I most enjoy about being creative and using
my imagination, is that there really isn't anything you can't create!
I have always loved the look and lure of the Ouija board.  I immediately
thought that I should make one from wool, of course!
It can be used as either a wall hanging or table scape!
What do you think?
 
 
 
Now I think you will agree,(that is if you are over the age of 40),
that no Halloween is complete until you have watched
Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin on tv.
Here is my homage to Charlie Brown and the gang!
The spider web is another great Halloween home décor item
that I created with wool!
 
 
 
Well that's a little sneak peak in to how we handcraft the home for Halloween!
I believe that when you take something you have made with your own two hands and a bit of imagination, you have an opportunity to "dec-create" and design something really spectacular for your home!
 
 
 
Don't forget to take a look below at the before and after photos
of the vintage inspired Halloween clock.
 
 
And...if you like what you see, most of what I have created 
will be for sale soon, along with a plethora of other
figments from my imagination, in my new Etsy store!
Yes, after a lot of hemming and hawing,
I am ready to take my work to the next level!
  
Come back soon!
