Homemade Witch Costume (1920's)

Witch Costume to Make http://vintageinfo.net/homemade-witch-costume/

The Witch Costume requires the following materials:

  • 4 folds No. 65 Orange Crepe Paper
  • 2 folds No. 12 Black Crepe Paper
  • 1 fold No. 11 White Crepe Paper
  • 1 sheet No. 12 Black Mat Stock

About making costumes using crepe paper:

Most costumes are made over a muslin foundation to which the crepe paper is sewed or pasted.  The materials are inexpensive and very stricking and unusual costumes may be made with very little work.

The “slip-over” costume is very popular as it may be worn over any simple clothing and quickly removed.

The foundation is a full width of crepe paper cut out either oblong or rounding for the neck so that it will hang straight down front and back.

Turn under the outer edge from shoulder to waist line both front and back and make one or two tucks to make the waist the correct width.

To this foundation are added ruffles, fringe or cut-out designs.

This Halloween Costume Idea is from the 1923 Dennison’s Bogie Book.

Homemade Tally Cards or Score Cards (1920's)

Tally or Score Cards for Halloween http://vintageinfo.net/homemade-tally-cards-or-score-cards-1920s/Often, Tally Cards or Score Cards are used during a Halloween Party to record the winner of each game or stunt.

You can easily make them with gummed seals, stickers or cut-outs and perhaps an artistic touch with a brush or marker.

Seal H 639 decorates a tally card in the drawing and two stuck together hold the tiny pencil in place.

Seal H 653 is also used for a score card in the illustration.

The pencil is transformed into a broom with a witch astride using some crepe paper, gummed seals H 641 and H 653.

Homemade Witch Halloween Invitation Idea (1920's)

Witch Invitation to Make http://vintageinfo.net/homemade-witch-halloween-invitation-idea-1920s/Usual invitations may be purchased ready to fill in the name and date, but with very little work something quite out of the ordinary can be made.

To make a unique Homemade Witch Halloween Invitation follow these steps:

  • Witch Cut-out H 78 is cut following the line of the cape.
  • A sheet of plain paper is pasted to the skirt and cut out following the outline of the head and cape.
  • All are fastened together again with a tiny paper fastener.
  • The invitation is written on the white paper.

This method of creating a homemade Halloween invitation can be easily adapted to a number of Halloween Cut-outs.

This Halloween Invitation Idea is from the 1923 Dennison’s Bogie Book.

Vintage Halloween Favors – 7 Favors to Make (1920's)

7 Halloween Favors To Make http://vintageinfo.net/vintage-halloween-favors-to-make/

Note: all of these favors were made using Dennison Manufacturing supplies from the 1920’s as seen in Dennison’s Bogie Book from 1925.  Modern day substitutes can be found.

All of the Halloween Party Favors and novelties illustrated here can be easily and inexpensively fashioned with the help of the stock goods that are described on pages 30 and 31.  In many cases they are combined with inexpensive toys or packaged candy.

Cat Balloon Favor (no.1)

Cut out the mouth of an H 98 Cut-out and draw a rubber balloon through the opening.  Glue another cat’s head to the back of the first one with the wooden mouthpiece between them.

Ghostly Prize Favor (no. 2)

Make a ball of white crepe paper for the head, fastening it with wire to the top of a paper bag filled with popcorn or candy.  Wrap this wire with white crepe paper before fastening it in place and make it long enough to form arms.  Tie a piece of white crepe paper around the neck, for the skirt, and add a circular piece for the cape.  Draw the ghostly features with India ink.

Witch Pencil Favor (no. 3)

Cut a piece of No. 71 Light Brown Crepe Paper with the grain into a fine fringe.  Wrap it around the end of a brown pencil and fasten it with fine wire.  Glue two Witch Cut-outs H 37 back to back, with the “broom” between them, first cutting off the cardboard broom.

Cat Score Card (no. 4)

Paste a white correspondence card to a piece of orange mat stock a little larger than the white card. Add a circular piece of black mat stock and then a square piece of orange.  Fasten an H 683 Silhouette to the center and then make a neck-tie of a bit of white paper, lettering it as shown.

Black Cat Charm Favor (no. 5)

A loop of wire is fastened between two H 586 Silhouettes and the whole smoothly covered with black sealing wax.  A bit of Green Bronze Wax is used for the eyes.  A loop of green tinsel ribbon, long enough so that the “charm” may be worn around the neck, completes it.

Cat Bag Favor (no. 6)

Make a small bag of orange crepe paper with drawstrings at the top and paste a Cut-out H 111 to the side.  A bag like this may be the container in which to present almost any small prize.

Witch Horn Favor (no.7)

Orange and black crepe paper cut in a fringe is attached to a small horn and a Witch Cut-out H 112 is fastened in place so that the mouthpiece of the horn comes at the peak of the hat. It will be more attractive if the horn itself is first covered with orange crepe paper.
