A simple way to make beautiful bats for Halloween home decor
I always wanted to decor my house in Halloween theme so I started early this year. It's simple, takes just a little time and looks really good. You can stick them anywhere you want - lamp, doors, walls... It's easy way to make many different bats since you can glue the wings to be lower or higher :) It's not something brilliant or unseen but I thought I'll share my way of doing this :)
I added my pattern if you would like to use it. Just download it and adjust to your liking.
