My Bedroom is a Bat Lair (plus, free bat templates)

Want some batty wall art for this Halloween? We love decorating for Halloween in our home (yep, even-our-bedroom), so this year I decided to go batty by creating bats to hang around. They can be attached to walls or even to toothpicks/skewers …

I hand drew the bats (a large and small one), and created templates for you (free, but of course!)

In our bedroom, I gave it a flight pattern as if they sleep in our nightstand (haha). We only have had ONE attack us (fall down), but it was probably bec I moved it a 1,052,215 times deciding on the flight pattern (guess bat tape got tired).

Material:
1. templates (get large here, small here)
2. poster board (I got mine at Rite Aid for $1.25)
3. scissors (like who doesn’t have a pair of scissors right?!!)
4. tape (already had at home)

Instructions:
1. upload templates
2. draw outline of bat onto template
3. folded their wings gently
4. attached with double sided tape

Cost: 
$1.25 (plus tax) for a total of 20 cool bats

 

TIP: Old costumes make GREAT decor too! I hung my old black wings from the time I went to a Halloween party as a dark angel, (my BFF went as a good angel .. we still debate as to who is reaaaally the nicer one!). Another time I went as a mermaid, so I placed my tail under the bed (as if a mermaid is hiding). Check our the placements below . . .

Can you think of any old costume that you can display as decor.
