This is a simple Halloween witch with honeycomb cauldron from Paper Art. While you could tape it to a wall and show one side, it's really meant to be hung so both sides of the honeycomb cauldron, and witch, can be seen. The style is neither here nor there, and seems about right for a 1970s to 1980s approach to Halloween decorations: more child friendly and cheaply printed.
I'm a pushover for Halloween paper decorations. Not overly fond of "cute" stuff, but I had this Beistle mobile in my closet for ages, and I like the colors and cartoon whimsy. So now it's hanging from the ceiling this Halloween, and for many more to come.
Here's an evocative Halloween 1946 paper advert for Dessart Brothers. Note the quaint spelling of "Hallowe'en." Note also this ad is from the March 1946 issue of Playthings, the trade magazine. I repeat, March. So...some may complain Halloween shows up too early in the stores now, but maybe not early enough? Playthings magazine is still published.
Imagine trying to put some of these cut-out masks on the backs of cereal boxes now. Or even wearing one for Halloween. There'd be hell to pay, that's for sure. I can see the bitter tweets and Facebook posts now. And still, we haven't come that far socially, have we, that we pretend to?
