Inexpensive DIY Halloween Decor


Update: The pattern Download is now available Here on my new blog.



These felt bats are super easy to make, and a very inexpensive way to decorate for Halloween.
1) Download my PDF bat pattern. (Found on my new blog.)
2) Cut out pattern and trace bats onto black stiff felt, or black card-stock.
3) Cut bats from felt or card-stock.
4) hang from mantel, ceiling, stair railings, & etc.

Above, I used masking tape to tape the bats to my front door. On these bats, I folded them towards the center to make them look like they are flying.

I hope I get a chance to make these- I think my daughter could help me cut them out! (reminds me of the awesome snowflakes you shared with us, but more simple cutting!)

I love the bat decor idea. Very fun. I am hoping to put some across my doorway. Is it me, or is the download link not working?
Thanks!
