No matter what I tried, I couldn't get a good picture of the vertical banner I made for this weeks challenge at The Paper Variety. The challenge is to create a cute or spooky Halloween project. I created this bat banner for my neighbor to hang on her porch.

I drew the bat in Inkscape, to cut on my Cricut with SCAL. I cut 12 bats to layer them, so as it turns in the wind, you can still see the word. I used Stickles on the bottom edges of the bats and spelled "Spooky" with stickers. I cut about 24 inches of twine and layered it between the bats before gluing together. I tied black fibers and orange twine below each bat. To add weight to the bottom, I strung on a few glass beads and more fiber and twine.

Be sure to head over to The Paper Variety to check out all the cute spooky projects.

Thanks for stopping by!
