Vintage Inspired Halloween Crafts

Vintage inspired Halloween crafts are a great way to incorporate your love of all things vintage into your Halloween décor. I love to decorate with vintage items in my home.

Over the years I have made quite a few Vintage inspired Halloween crafts that are perfect for decorating your home. I have a 1930's paper jack-o-lantern that was my grandmothers when she was a child, which has been the main inspiration for all of my vintage inspired Halloween craft projects.

Here are some suggestions and ideas for creating your own vintage inspired Halloween crafts:

One of the first vintage inspired Halloween craft projects I ever did was to make a jack-o-lantern out of a metal can. It was a Folgers coffee can that was about to find its way into the garbage. I decided to use tin snips to cut out a face, then I painted the entire metal can with a rusting faux treatment kit I found at Lowe’s. I made the entire can look like it was really old.

Then I put a candle in it and used I for a great centerpiece on my coffee table. I have also made this project by painting the can metal can with orange paint and then rubbing gel wood stain on it to make it look old.

(Keep reading for more of the crafts for your vintage Halloween home....)

I will try to get the inspiration photo up later today.
