Crafting in the Sixties

My cousin was going through some of her old photos and sent me a bunch. In the mix were these three. They were decorations that my grandma (who worked at a party/craft shop) made back when I was a little girl. I believe she made these in the early sixties. Isn't it amazing how crafting and DIY has changed since then?

Back then crepe paper, styrofoam, and beads were big. Makes you wonder what the next fifty years of crafting will bring.


  1. I think it's really awesome that you have photos of your grandma's craftiness! I wish I had some to look back on and remember. I don't even know if I have any photos of my grandma, now that I think of it. =0(
    Thanks for sharing your grandma's crafty work!

  2. Working at a craft shop must be so much fun! And dangerous, I am sure I would want to buy everything :-)

  3. so that must be where you got the crafty gene from then :) It's fun looking back at what was in style back then. I have a craft book that is from the late 60's early 70's and it makes me laugh when I look through at some of the pictures

  4. I love the little Indian girl and the pumpkin next to her :) Yes, crepe paper was huge back!
