My crafty sister-in-law came by the house last week with a super-cool bat mobile that she had made from a Paper Source Kit. (they no longer have it on the site, maybe in stores? Maybe on sale?) Alas, the bat-mobile was for her bat-loving mom, not mebed pillow covers, but what a cool idea! So here is my version of a bat mobile.

DIY after the jump…;What you need:Black cardstock or paper (silver &; brown bats could work as well)A tree branchfishing lineneedleBlack spray paint (optional)scissorsand a printer if you want to use our bat template

1. Find a nice creepy branch and remove the leaves (or leave natural, if you prefer))

2. Spray Paint your branch black on both sides in a well-ventilated area

3. Print out 3-4 copies of the bat template and, holding a template over one sheet of black paper, cut out the bats through both layers. They don’;t have to be exact. The more variety the better. You will see that I decided not to cut out my fangs but I left them in the template should you wish to do so.

4. Cut 2 small horizontal slits in the bat. One in the head and one in the abdomen. Vary the location a bit so your bats are at angles.

5. Thread your needle with the fishing line (or thread)

6. Tie a knot at the end of the string for the largest bat to “;sit”; on.

7. Run the string through the lower slit and out of the head of your largest bat. String your bats with the largest bats on the bottom and smallest on top to create the illusion of distance, tying a knot between each for the bat to “;sit”; on.? On some strands string the top bat up-side-down so he is “;hanging”; from the branch.

8. If you would like to secure your bats, add a dab of glue at one of the slits on each bat.

9. Tie the top of each string to the tree branch and let the bats hang down

10. Tie a piece of fishing line to each end of the branch and hang the mobile from the ceiling, in a doorway or from a light fixture (as shown here.) If your final location is reachable, you may want to hang your branch before attaching the bats

If you would like to make strands of bats, as my sister-in-law did, simply string the bats on a length of 1/8″; satin ribbon. Elegant and so simple and dare I say, much less of a pain in the butt.

Instead of trying to write the directions for this tablecloth, I decided to take a picture of the diagram that I made and used while putting mine together.(Click on the picture to enlarge it)

Hey y'all! I am so excited to be sharing with you a tutorial for the girls' scarecrow tutu Halloween costumes that they worelast year. You see, I only started my blog on October 28th last year {with my debut $71 laundry room renovation post}, so I was not in any position to share a Halloween costume tutorialbeforeHalloween. But the good news is that I can now share it with you this year!

Choosing a fabric for your new slipcover doesn’t have to be a chore. A beautiful fabric — in a medium- or even a heavyweight, with a texture, pattern, and color you like, and the durability factors you need — is out there waiting for you. The upholstery fabric for a new sofa or armchair is a big investment—you don’t want to be second-guessing it a few months after the piece arrives on your doorstep. Choose the wrong material and you’ll find yourself battling snags and stains. If your head starts to spin when faced with myriad choices, having the basic necessities clearly in mind can keep you on the right track.Your furniture slipcovers need to complement your room, of course, but they also serve as a style element with which you can elaborate on a theme. You can echo colors from elsewhere in the room or break out with something bold and different yet still harmonious. Pick a color palette that matches your room and generally stay within its parameters, or pick out another color entirely based on the cool/warm paradigm.
