A Gallery of Vintage Beistle Halloween Decorations

Vintage Beistle Halloween witch seals

You probably have never heard of the Beistle Company, but chances are you’ve seen their Halloween decorations. The company was founded in 1900 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania by Martin Luther Beistle and is still a major party products manufacturer.

(For a more thorough company history, check out this page.)

While Beistle still produces a wide range of year-round party goods, their classic Halloween decorations are how most of us know them. This gallery offers but a sampling of Beistle’s paper Halloween decorations that have been ubiquitous in American households for generations.

    If you knew how many of your cardboard items I have, you wouldn’t believe it! Mine are so old, I didn’t think that they were made anymore! So happy to see that they still are produced! You made my day! Thanks again, Theresa

    I think we had the moon and black cat when I was growing up, or something very similar. It always went on our front door.
