Flying Bats

 I was looking on the Internet for some Anatomy pictures to print and add to my Halloween decor and while I was looking I found some little bats.
 I came up with a way to put a little different spin on dictionary page art. 

It only took a short time to make, the longest and most amount of patience was needed to cut out the tiny bats.  I had a vintage dictionary handy, and I found the page for BATS and riped it out.  I had to glue the page to some foam board and then just pin the bats on.  Once I had the bats pinned in place, I used a little dab of hot glue to keep them at the top of the pin.  After the glue dried I used a black magic marker and colored in the top of the pin.  Then I framed my picture in an empty black frame.

SO simple, different and I like it. 

My creativity inspires my children.
They were gluing, painting and creating spooky things right along with me to share with their friends. 

I am joining The Girl Creative for Just Something I Whipped Up Monday and Cottage Instincts for Make 4 Monday.

How are you making your home SPOOKY for Halloween?


  1. That's really creative. I really love it! My brain is now spinning to think of something like this to leave out year round. I'm saving this to my idea file :)

  2. This turned out great...very creative. That's great that your kids joined in :)

  3. Such a stylish Halloween decor item !

  4. I like it, great decoration, bravo:))
    Greetings from Europe, Biljana

  5. Because we are moving soon...huge move... thousands of miles away move...different country move... this year I will not be decorating for Halloween but I get to enjoy anyway all the beautiful creations that talented people like you share!

  6. Alaina, I think you have the most creative imagination! Love all your bizarre Halloween decor. Creepy, but lots of fun!
    big hugs,

  7. I'm such a loser! I just now found the other comments onmy last post. Anyway, miss you, LOVE your bats. I'm working on a routine that will at least give me a couple hours a week to dedicate to reading my friends' blogs again.

  8. Since my girls are grown, I don't do up the "spooky" like I use to. And no kids ever come to this neighborhood. I guess because we live in a garden home and it's mostly retired folks. I just love your bats! That's pretty darned nifty and very creative.

  9. What a cute idea! I actually had one of those experiences where you start to enter a cave and a million bats fly out. I was about 8 and we were visiting somewhere in Arizona I think. All I really remember is me and my dad running like mad!

  10. I love this idea! Looks great!


I enjoy each and every comment you leave. Thanks for stopping by.
