It’s Halloween!

Well at least it's time for all of the crafters, sewers and general DIYers to get started with everything we wish to create before we get to show it all off to the world.

I'll be posting updates and tutorials of all the weird and wacky things I’m making for Halloween this year.

Well go get started, it’s time to get Spooky!!

For every event I create a board on Pinterest where I gather all the refrences, insparation and tutorials I can find.

As its easy to see I love using Pinterest. I use it for everything and I have made pleanty of boards over the years. I have posted this direct link to the Halloween 2015 board so you can easily see where I am getting the insparation for posts and tutorials, as well as the original links that I used (Without having to figure out which of my many boards the pins a located on. Seriously I have 7 boards with the word Halloween in it. I like my stuff to be organised :).
Below is a direct link to my Halloween 2015 Board.

Follow Jinx's board Halloween 2015 on Pinterest.

I also have a seperate board for food, drinks and snacks. Be warned alot of the drinks have alcohol in them, so don't make these ones for the kids. The ones that do will have '(alcoholic)' written at the begining of the comments.

Flying Bats

I created these flying bat decorations for Halloween last year, But they still look great. 

I originally got the idea for this decoration from Marvelous You can read her tutorial here.


  • A4 Black Card
  •  Masking Tape

I have created a bat silhouette that you can use as a template. You can download the template here.

Print off the template and cut it out.  

Trace around the template onto a black piece of card. You can easily fit two bat silhouettes on one piece of A4 card.

(Picture of Template traced on to teh black card here)

Now cut out around the outline. To make sure that the bats wings are the same shape on both sides you can fold the card and template in half, line the folded edge of the template up to the folded edge of the card, trace and cut out the outline. 

Once you have cut out the bat silhouette simply fold some masking tape over itself and stick it on the back and stick to the wall.

And you’re done! Create as many as you want and arrange them as you like.
