DIY Spooky Bat Banner

Do you decorate for Halloween? Typically, I don't, I just decorate for Fall in general. Last year I shared my first Halloween mantle I created for the kids costume party we were having. This year we planned a Fall fire with friends and I wanted to make a cute, quick little banner to display outside! This banner took me under 15 minutes, no joke!


Using my silhouette machine, I downloaded a set of bats for $0.99! I arranged the set of (4) bats on the page. I used 5 pieces of black construction paper and got to work! One piece of construction paper fit the 4 bats perfectly. Once they were all cut out, I grabbed my heated glue gun and began to attach them to my fishing line in different directions creating a pattern. I did this for the full length until my bats were gone. My particular banner is rather long, but that's the way I wanted it! I took it outside and taped it into place on our barn. It was perfectly windy, so it made the bats appear to be flying! The kids loved it! This is a cute staple piece that we will add to our Halloween decor for years to come and it was so simple to make!

My Greatest Accomplishment

There are so many things to be thankful for, I realize that a few times daily. The best mindset to have, is one of humility. Sometimes when I'm having a little quiet time, I think of all the blessings I have in my life.. Do you ever do this? At times, I feel overwhelmed with love (in a good way!). I think how quickly my kids are growing up, the people they are becoming, the family I don't get to see as often but have fond memories with, my amazing friends, our accomplishments, our faith, but equally important, our trials. 

That's the wonderful thing about life, you experience trials to really appreciate the blessings! I am so happy to be where I am today and look forward to continuing to grow! And I mean this in all aspects of my life, my marriage, being a Mama, being a believer, even being a blogger! No one is perfect, and I'm certainly not trying to be, but I do want to continue to work on being better. There's always room for improvement! 

Today I have the pleasure of sharing with you my GREATEST accomplishment, my family! These three people are my biggest support system! I cherish their love more than I could ever explain. Their love is endless, pure, honest, sincere and genuine.

A HUGE thanks to our wonderful friend and photographer Rose DeVore.
