Making Feather Wings Feather wings, such as Cupid wings and angel wings, are made on a founda­tion of wire bent in the correct shape, or if they are quite large, the foundation is made of cardboard reinforced with wire.

A wire, shaped to follow the outline of the wing, is fastened to it with tabs of gummed cloth tape (illus. No.1).

Hallowe'en is a splendid time for giving a party. In ancient times huge bonfires were built on the top of hills to proclaim that mystic and sacred rites were being performed by which to ward off evil spirits that were supposed to be on mischief bent on this day.

  This is from the 1950's... Traditional jack-o-lanterns made from hollowed pumpkins lack the durability and portability so much desired by Halloween pranksters.  A good substitute that fills all the practical requirements can be made from a large gourd of the necked variety. The gourd selected should be properly dried and coated with shellac or orange-colored enamel.  Cut eyes, nose and mouth in the appropriate design, then cut off the neck of the gourd at a point just below the bulbous end. Fit the lens of a large flash-light into the opening, trimming or padding the opening as required to [...]

For the decoration of the table a Japanese umbrella is used as a foundation for the hanging centerpiece. The funny-faced lanterns are glass fish globes, and tiny red or blue light bulbs could be dropped into them. The place-card people have fortunes fastened to their backs.
