Evita decided to use some of the crafting resources already available to her and went digging through the Martha Stewart archives. There she found this simple bat pattern. Using a sheet of vellum, she cut one out to act as a template. Next, using poster board, she out an entire colony.
Each bat was secured to a ribbon with hot glue, which once dry, has found a new home against a mirror in her dining room. Even if your bats get a little soft after a few years of use, this is a great project to upcycle and give a little boost. Just cover each bat in glue and glitter and they'll gain a little more strength and last for years to come.
Look for Evita's full Halloween look a little later next week. Don't forget to take a peek back at her pad two years back, spooky and attractive at the same time!
