Vintage Spooky Spool Party Favors

Inspired by Halloween iconography of the 1920's and 30's, we created some haunting, vintage-looking Halloween party favors with Halloween paper, cardstock, stickers and wood spools. You can go completely vintage this Halloween by making the Cat Candy Holder and Skeleton Halloween Pumpkin.
