Wall of paper bats tutorial

Hello lovelies, I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

I spent the weekend spending far too much time on my Haunted House gingerbread house, but it is nearly finished!

So today I wanted to share with you my wall of paper bats...

After hanging my Halloween banner, skull and bones paper garlands on the wall opposite the window, which I showed you on Saturday. I felt like that the back wall needed some decoration. I had remembered seeing lots of lovely pins on Pinterest of walls adorned with paper bats which got me thinking that might be just what my back wall needed. So I designed the pattern and started cutting out lots of bats. I loved how they looked but they needed some extra sparkle, what doesn't?

So with a little silver glitter glue and some bluetack, my wall of bats is complete.

Here's how I made them, with free downloadable pattern...
