Quick and Easy Classic Retro Beistle Halloween Banner Idea: Vintage Kitsch


Like every Halloween and kitsch lover I adore classic Beistle Halloween decorations. Unfortunately, I've never encountered real ones for sale "in the wild." This year I made a quick little banner with some of the iconic Halloween cut-outs and it's been just the right festive touch for my living room.


To Make This I Used...

Colored Hemp Cord (I used this one by Darice)
My HP Envy 4520 Printer/Scanner
Small Round Hand Punch (I use this one from Michael's) the smaller holes look more polished

You can use stock images, public domain images or design your own images for the banners. I ordered these Beistle reproductions from eBay then scanned them and printed them on fabric for longevity. 

One day I aspire to a huge collection of authentic retro Halloween with Beistle galore but until I find at thrifts, creating my own and a few reproductions will have to do in the meantime.


After carefully cutting them out I...taped them to the jute with packing tape. I will eventually sew the printed fabric to sturdy felt and attach them more permanently to the jute, haha, but it's market season and I was in a hurry to finish this. I took this out to outdoor markets and it held up to near-hurricane winds and rains! 


Speaking of Hurricanes...if you're in the South Eastern U.S with me, take care and be careful while Hurricane Matthew blows through! We've got a friend from an evacuated area over and we're hunkered down with horror movies and work, enjoying the electricity while we have it! (If there are no posts or slow e-mail replies here forward it's the Hurricane, hopefully everything will be back to normal Monday)

    1. Beistle is classic American Halloween imagery, I love their designs. Luckily the hurricane passed without doing too much damage here but caused lots of damage nearby and elsewhere ;\

  4. This is a really cute idea! I passed by a dollar store yesterday and they had a lot of Halloween decorations but I like the idea of homemade decorations much more.

  6. That is so cute! I've been putting my 2 and 3 year old in charge of making our DIY autumn and Halloween decorations this year. Yesterday I had them color on pages from a 1955 encyclopedia with markers in fall colors I'm going to cut the pages into strips and make paper chains. :D
