a batty little quicky craft..


 
Something easy peasy and only takes a couple minutes.    I saw this on pinterest.. so I cant take credit for it.   But it looks so cool at night when the light is on!  

All you have to do is make a little bat pattern and cut it out of black paper.  I would have used construction paper if I had had some.   Then just cut them out, put some rolled tape on the front of them and stick them inside your lamp shades!

 I got carried away and put them on three shades in the living room..  might be cute to tie a thread to one and have it hanging below the shade!  I may have to do that myself, since I just thought of it now.  

Anyways...  that's all for now..  just wanted to share that with you.    and, yes.. I have Halloween out now.  Just inside.   I haven't done outside or the porch or my craft room yet either.   And, the skellies are still in their closet.  but I was thinking of bringing them out this weekend.  we'll see!  anyways.. have a great weekend bloggy friends!

Just love your bats Viv! I think I could even manage to do that, LOL. Like seeing your other Halloween decor peeking in. You may motivate me to start early, at least I better start my crafting. Thanks for the batty idea. Have a great weekend! :)

I'm thinking of decorating our full sized Halloween tree this weekend. Now, that you've started, I had better get a move-on! Love all your pictures in IG. I'm so behind on my blog. Yikes. Have a great weekend!
