I wanted to add some Halloween to the rooms. A friend of mine made bat cut outs and taped them up on her walls...I loved them and how cheap and easy it was sooo I went ahead and made a bunch as well! Love how they look and how they are all different from each other. This is in the dining room. I went a little crazy using the vampira scape effect on picnik lol.
I used the glass jar luminaries that the kids made for this arrangement. Added in some skulls and big blingy gems plus the new garland I got at Michaels. I thought it was cute with the little ghosts and candy corns on it..$3. why not?!
This is my Bat wall in the living room...it's hard to tell that the bats are sticking off of the wall above the horse...but they are. The kids really like them..it looks like they're flying! Oh and I love my crow perched on my wall plaque!
Here is the living room at night with just the candles and garland lights lit. I love the glow!
This room is upstairs. It is an open room that sits off of two of my kids rooms in the back of the house. It's small but works well for a small TV area. My love seat from Ikea is up there and an old armoire from pier 1 imports that I've had for years! The rug is from pottery barn and the black table was a thrift/junk find for $35. I got that last week. I plan on painting it with some ASCP...just haven't gotten to that yet! As you can see MORE bats lol. Sorry...I just really had fun making them!
Looking into the TV room from my sons bedroom.
A vignette I put together using lots of my Grandmothers books and some things I had around the house. I purchased the cloth pumpkin on sale at Michaels and the white one I painted with ASCP old white. The birds were sent to me by a dear friend.
More painted pumpkins, old books and one of the fabric pumpkins I made.
I love the shadow cast on the wall from the bats...very neat! The pillows I made seem to float around the house to different rooms...
Well that is a little of what I have been doing.....making lots of bats ha! Hope you enjoyed that long picture tour. Thanks for stopping by to take a looksey!
