Halloween is about getting into the season’s spirit and having fun. But it doesn’t have to be all about candy and costumes. Halloween is also an excellent excuse for decorating your home, whether that means decorating your door with pumpkins or hanging some creepy spiders around your windows. We’ve gathered some of our favorite vintage Halloween decorations here so you can bring them out year after year!
Pumpkinhead is a character from the movie of the same name, which tells the story of a farmer whose son is killed by a witch. After discovering that he can bring his son back to life with a spell, he uses it and creates Pumpkinhead, an evil version of his son who proceeds to kill anyone in their way. This Halloween decoration was popular at least as early as 1865 and was often made using old pumpkins from previous years.
It’s easy to forget that spiders are just as creepy in real life as they are on Halloween. The spider keychain is a great way to keep your keys safe while reminding yourself to be wary of those eight-legged creatures. This small, retractable keychain features an adorable brass spider hanging from the center. There’s no reason not to get one! This spider pendant comes in black, white, or silver and will fit well with any decor style you have at home—whether it’s modern or vintage-inspired.
Vintage Halloween Ornaments
One of the most fun and affordable ways to decorate your home for Halloween is with vintage Halloween ornaments. These decorative items were initially made in the 1950s and 1960s, so they provide a fun way to bring back memories from your childhood. They can also be used as gifts for loved ones, who are sure to appreciate being reminded of their childhoods when they receive a classic jack-o’-lantern or witch on the door!
These decorations will also make great party favors if you’re hosting a Halloween party this year. Your guests will love receiving such an adorable favor, especially if you choose one that matches their interests or personality!
Skelly’s Pumpkin Carriage Ride
This is a perfect vintage Halloween decoration for any vintage Halloween enthusiast. The thing about it is that it has a dual purpose. It can be used as both a decoration and a toy, which means you can use it both this year and next year too! If you don’t like the idea of keeping something around for two years without using it, that’s fine—you can always use this carriage as part of your Halloween movie production instead!
Viper Bottle Opener
This is one of my favorite Halloween decorations. It’s a great conversation starter and a fun gift for someone who loves to entertain. The unique bottle openers have been around for years, but it’s still one of the best vintage Halloween decorations.
Snake decorations are a very popular theme for Halloween decorations. You can find them in many different styles, including plush toys and figurines. These cool bottle openers are a unique take on this popular animal theme. It’s perfect for anyone who loves to entertain or enjoys having fun at home. This would make a great addition to any bar or kitchen counter because it’s so cute and useful at the same time!
The 1930s: Vintage Halloween painting
If you’re looking for a Halloween decoration that’s both cute and creepy, look no further than Norman Rockwell’s “Halloween.” The painting was published in the Saturday Evening Post in 1936 and used as the cover for their October 31 issue. In addition to featuring a little boy dressed like Frankenstein with his hand on a metal gate (and another spooky-looking kid behind him), the painting also includes a witch playing the organ, ghosts flying out of coffins, and bats flying overhead: everything you could want from an eerie scene.
1910: Creepy skeleton
Consider this skeleton if you want to add some spookiness to your Halloween decorations. It’s made of paper-mâché and painted to look like a skeleton. The first one was created in 1910 by William Tindall, who had been working on other crafts (like making puppets). His work was so revolutionary that it won him an award at the International Exposition in Paris in 1900!
This creepy decoration has been custom-made using an antique paper-mâché technique that is still used today. The paper is molded into different shapes before being glued together, then painted with acrylic paint (or other types of paints) based on the color you want the final product.
The jack-o’-lantern is a classic Halloween decoration that has been around since the 19th century. It’s a lantern made from a pumpkin, lit with a candle, and carved into the shape of a face. Its origins are unclear, but it is believed to be an Irish tradition dating back hundreds of years and possibly originating from Jack-a-Lanterns carved out of turnips or other vegetables.
The jack-o’-lantern may have been introduced to America by early immigrants. Who brought their customs with them when they came from Ireland, Scotland, and England in the 1800s.
1929: Halloween backdrop
Have you ever wondered why Halloween decorations look so spooky? It’s because they’ve been around for a long time. Halloween is one of the oldest holidays celebrated in America.
The first recorded holiday celebration occurred in Ireland on October 31st, 837 A.D. When people thought that ghosts and spirits would appear on All Hallows Eve (or All Saints Day). At that time, people lit bonfires to ward off evil spirits and also dressed up in costumes with masks to scare away any evil spirits that might be lurking around the neighborhood.
You can decorate your home with many more vintage Halloween decorations. These are just a few examples of what is available today. If there is one thing we hope you take away from this blog post. There is no need to skip decorating your home because it’s not as “cool” or “trendy” as someone else would be! The best way to celebrate Halloween is by doing what makes sense for your family and being proud of who you are instead of following what other people think should happen during this time.
