Last Minute Halloween Bats Decor - DIY

Only 4 days to go till Halloween, and I am hurrying to make as much decor as I can. I recollected my old bat decoration, which  I used to make for my home. Those were... the bats! They were much more cheerful than the one below... times changed :)

   These bats is easy and fast to make! Supplies required: 
white paper, thicker than the usual A4 sheets (recycle some, like I did)
black acrylic paint
bat shape
scissors (oops! I didn't include them in the pic)
 I found the bat shape in the Internet and printed it out in a big size.(You can skip this if you know how to draw a simple bat shape). Copy the shape and vary it from big to small - whatever size you want your bats to be.
Now fill up the shape with black paint and let it dry. 
Alter the bat's shape while cutting, make the edges neat.
Here comes my craft tape: cut a square piece from it and cut this piece diagonally. You will get 2 triangles.
   Paste the triangles as to make bat's angry shining eyes! Enjoy your spooky Halloween decoration, which you can stick to the wall or attach to the curtains.
The ghost hanging in my room...where from?!! Boo!

P.S. idea of the ghost is taken from Do It Yourself Divas... and modified of course!

  3. Hello
    I'm so glad that you visited my blog, I am not in touch with any other bloggers from India and would love to read more of your crafts etc.
    I am intrigued when reading your profile about your unusual love story, tell me more. lol
    I shall add you to my 'Blogs I love'.
    I am also interested in witchcraft and follow the seasons, I sincerely believe in magic bought about through thought but don't really advertise this to many people as over here one is thought of as odd if it is
    I do have an email if you want to contact me.
    Hugs from u.k.

  4. Oh WOW what a great idea they are super. Thanks for showing how to make them. Also thanks so much for the lovely comments on my blog, Really appreciate you dropping by to visit,

    Have a Lovely Weekend, Hazelxox

  5. I love that you are constantly trying new crafts. Your bats are great. I haven't even gotten out my Halloween decorations yet. Or put up any Fall items either. :/

    We have a gas stove here. I hate changing the tank -- leave that task to my husband. It definitely cooks faster than an electric one. know people here who don't want the gas so they opt to only microwave or use a small electric convection oven. I don't think I could do that.

    I pan fried some frozen paratha to eat with my curry. Yummo!

    Hope you are having a good day. Tammy
