Haunted Typewriters Pen a Vintage Halloween

repurposed antique corona no 3 typewriter

Either the spiders in my house are very intelligent or this antique Corona No. 3 typewriter is haunted, churning out typed pages on its own!  What do you think?

The antique typewriter with orange and yellow keys was simply made to be part of a vintage inspired Halloween.  In addition, its petite size turned a fairytale pumpkin into the perfect Halloween desk.

I took pages out of a vintage book and then strung them up to the ceiling with fishing wire.  The pages naturally turn and flutter when someone walks by, adding to the eerie feel.

Have any vintage treasures inspired you this Halloween? I’ll be back again this week with another peek into how a vintage Halloween at my home is bubbling and toiling.

  16. Out of curiosity – how did you attach the fishing wire to your ceiling?

  17. Grace

    Strong clear scotch tape did the trick. The pages and wire are so light it only needs a strip of tape to make it ghostly!

  18. You are too much, Grace. All you touch turns to magic. You photography and styling does need to be seen by the world.
