Horn Tootin'

I've started collecting the vintage Halloween horns as I love their graphic look and shape, and they inspire me as I create my own illustrated horns and hats for my papier mache characters. In a grouping like this one on my fireplace mantel, they are bold and eye-catching, playful and fun. The tallest one was just given to me as an early birthday gift from my mom, so it's starting to feel like a real collection!
Together, I feel that my one of kind art pieces blend well with the vintage novelties of yesteryear. The witch bust pictured actually appeared in my recent BH&G Halloween Tricks & Treats Magazine article, so she's had her day of fame, and I've decided to keep her. Perhaps I'll make similar witchy busts next year as I know many folks have asked if I'd be putting her up for adoption.....Anyway, this is just a little peek from my inspirations at home..... Go toot those horns in honor of my favorite holiday!
