Special Feature: Karla's Halloween Decoration Ideas
These Halloween decoration ideas from Karla of It's the Little Things That Make a House a Home, will be a big hit with the entire family and your neighborhood.
Enjoy her pictures and she even tells us how she did it (along with some lessons learned)!
Karla's ideas came from a photo in Country Living magazine of a front door decorated with bats.
That was all it took to inspire Karla to create this great Halloween decoration idea.
Cut a Bazillion Bats
Karla bought black construction paper and she and her family cut out the bats.
They cut out lots and lots and lots of bats using a template provided by Country Living magazine.
She did not know how many to cut but knew it had to be many in order to create the effect she wanted.
Black Construction Paper or Felt?
Not to say that Karla was exited about this Halloween decorating idea but...she confessed that she started it without reading the directions!
She didn't realize until she had cut "zillions" of bats that she was supposed to use stiffened black felt, not black construction paper.
She soon realized the results of her mistake.
She attached her construction paper bats to her home with duct tape.
The next morning, much to her surprise, the wing tips had curled.
She re-taped the bats, hoping they will make it to Halloween!
She also didn't realize that the sun will fade construction paper.
Not all is lost.
As you can see from the following photos, her porch is a real hit in the neighborhood.
So take Karla's advice - use stiffened black felt.
Our warm thank you to Karla
for sharing her Halloween decorating ideas with us and we hope you enjoyed them as well.
