Bat Invasion

I knew as soon as I saw a Pin of a bat invasion on pinterest that I'd be using my Silhouette to create my own flock of bats. Of course, in true Julie fashion, I couldn't stop at one wall though, I had to create some sort of hellish bat explosion all over our living and dining rooms (which make up one big space). My husband loves them and once Snickerdoodle got over that I wanted him to play by himself a bit this morning so I could decorate, he too decided they were pretty fun.

I used a Silhouette bat pattern but I did add a dashed line down the center so they'd fold easily. Then I added a roll of tape to each of 160 bats ...

and I got to work sticking them in what I believed was a realistic bat formation.

I stuck a few on, then some more and some more and some more. Then I grabbed my favorite little model and took some pictures.

Snickerdoodle and I also made a little centerpiece for the dining room table (using a wood kit from JoAnns and some water colors):

And I busted out some decorations from last year as well:

I've gotta say though - my favorite time to look at Halloween decorations is at night and my bats didn't disappoint me one bit:
