After having kids, I started to enjoy decorating the apartment for seasonal events. For this Halloween, we decorated our place with a graphic and modern style with materials we already had, minus the mini pumpkins.
First, I made a cloud of bats in four sizes with black card stock. I found a bat template online and tweaked that template for a half sheet, a full sheet and two sheets taped together with black masking tape. I thought the variety of sizes would make the cloud feel more dynamic. You don't have to have a template...you could just "wing it." (Ha!) That's what I did for the tiniest of bats I made...I just made the general shape of the bat. To attach the bats to the wall, I used black masking tape and only tape down one bat wing so there was a 3D effect. The other bat wing came off the wall, creating movement and cool shadows. I also put some of the bat cloud in the foreground and some bats on a back wall for dimension. Batty, right?
|Leave the crease and stick just one wing on the wall for dimension and movement.|
|You can put the bats near a mirror. More bats for your money.|
