Batty Banner

I am still in the process of decorating my mantle because I simply love love love having the ability to start decorating for the holidays. Being low on cash I decided to use what I had on hand.













Supplies:





  • 3-4 cardboard boxes like frozen pizza or cracker boxes



  • stencils of a bat, rat and raven printed off the computer



  • black paint -I used spray paint because that's what was on hand but acrylic will work



  • electrical tape or string to tie your animals together and string on the mantle






I traced the stencil onto the cardboard boxes and cut them out. I ended up cutting out five bats and only one rat and one raven because they were just a real pain in the butt. Of course that could be because I only had kid scissors to cut them with.


My helper here sprayed them all black.


















Once they dried (mostly) I strung the bats together with electrical tape.



I decided that the rat and raven could be used elsewhere on the mantel.

























Your imagination is your limit. You could do pumpkins or witch's hats.



Happy Halloween!
