I look around this year I am pleasantly surprised at the Halloween trend this year, faux vintage. The stuff looks real don’t get me wrong, but their is something about it being really vintage that adds to my love of vintage Halloween.
That being said, I refuse to pay high prices for “vintage” anything, faux or real.
I needed a hanging for my cupboard door for Halloween, I wanted a vintage look, I even purchased some felt on sale at Micheals for it, but quickly changed my mind when I came across a plastic canvas pattern on Pinterest.
Of course I had to reinvent the pattern to fit onto a larger rectangular canvas, you can click on the photo to be taken to my made up pattern, I did change the cat slightly too, you can click on the original to be taken to that link as well.
I did the pattern up after I made the hanging so if you have any questions or mistakes are found, leave me a comment here, thank you.
It took awhile but I love my less then $2 faux Halloween hanging, I joked with hubz, I need to start on the Christmas one now, deciding the pattern is half the challenge.
Shout out to anyone here reading that belongs to the Halloween or Plastic Canvas groups who helped me decide on backgrounds, going with adding borders and cream fill in turned out to be just what I was looking for.
Here are some of my real retro and some faux vintage Halloween pieces.
Here are some quick pics of my fave retro pieces at Micheal’s , I may have to go back when they are on sale or clearance.
