Do you decorate for Halloween? Typically, I don’t, I just decorate for Fall in general. Last year I shared my first Halloween mantle I created for the kids costume party we were having. This year we planned a Fall fire with friends and I wanted to make a cute, quick little banner to display outside! This banner took me under 15 minutes, no joke!
Using my silhouette machine, I downloaded a set of bats for $0.99! I arranged the set of (4) bats on the page. I used 5 pieces of black construction paper and got to work! One piece of construction paper fit the 4 bats perfectly. Once they were all cut out, I grabbed my heated glue gun and began to attach them to my fishing line in different directions creating a pattern. I did this for the full length until my bats were gone. My particular banner is rather long, but that’s the way I wanted it! I took it outside and taped it into place on our barn. It was perfectly windy, so it made the bats appear to be flying! The kids loved it! This is a cute staple piece that we will add to our Halloween decor for years to come and it was so simple to make!
