Hanging Bat Chandelier

This bat chandelier is inspired by one that Pottery Barn Kids had for sale a few years ago. Their version had felt bats (and you could do that too!) Their version also had pom-poms, which are not spooky enough for me, but feel free to add them if you love the way it looks!

 :

Here’s what you’ll need:
black card stock or you can use stiff black felt, or pre-cut paper bats
black craft paint
white colored pencil if you use felt you may need a white seamstress marker instead
paintbrush
scissors
embroidery hoops in three sizes you can make your chandelier as big or small as you want by the size of your hoops
black tape wash tape or electrical tape
black quilting thread

Pumpkin Bowling

Looking to do something different this Halloween? If so, you might want to grab some pumpkins and try your hand at some of the great pumpkin-based sports rounded up by Inventor Spot. Of course, you’ll have to have a pretty giant pumpkin to try racing in a pumpkin paddling contest, so if you’re not a seriously skilled pumpkin farmer or someone with enough money to buy a pumpkin large enough to boat in, that option’s pretty much out, but the other five are ones pretty much anyone can do.

Decorations Perfect For Both Halloween And Christmas

Between the increasing popularity of Nightmare Before Christmas decorations, Halloween trees and spooky wreaths, Halloween and Christmas are becoming increasingly tied in together. For people who love decorations, but hate putting them up and taking them down, this is a fantastic combination because now you can finally decorate for Halloween and leave your embellishments up all the way through the end of the year. Here are a few great ideas for spooky Christmas decorations.

Halloween Trees

These days, lots of people are buying adorable, spooky ornaments to spruce up their Halloween trees. While you can always use a regular Christmas tree for this purpose, the green trees don’t look nearly as Halloween-y as black or orange trees. If you want a tree that will work for both Halloween and Christmas though, go for either white or black -both of which work perfectly with a wide variety of ornaments.

Easy Pumpkin Pretzels

It’s a cool, dreary day today here in Utah, so I officially deem it Fall. My favorite season! Fall also equates to pumpkins in my book, so I thought I’d post these cute little pretzel pumpkins today.

Aren’t they cute?! Couldn’t be easier either- melt chocolate, color orange, dunk pretzel. OK, there are a few more steps, but really, it’s easy! I love pretzels and chocolate together too- sweet and salty is a great combination.
