A few years ago I scored some bits and pieces of old Halloween crepe paper.  My husband wasn't too sure about my find, but he is sure now.  He loves these and I'm pleased myself.  A little cut and pasting, add an old frame, and voila!

Dolly3cats writes: Yes, it’s crepe paper. It appears to be from a skirt that wrapped around a party table to decorate it--just a guess. The paper is fragile and some areas were torn, and some folded beyond straightening. I had to cut around some of the characters and arrange them like a collage. The colors are very vivid and they are even more attractive in person. My husband loves the one where I put a pumpkin in the sky looking down. Lots of bats were cut out and replaced. I still have a bit of paper left and I'm going to have to get much more creative to use it all up (the pieces are getting smaller and smaller! Posted: 10:40 pm on October 28th

I just love to prove our hubbies wrong. Sometimes, all they see is junk and just don't have a vision to turn it into something cool/useful and save the stuff from going to the landfill.
Again welcome! You'll enjoy these for many years to come.
