I saw this idea on MADE, but decided I wanted a different style of bat. I wanted a little more of a kid friendly shape instead of a more realisitic one. And I already had the template from making my banner last year. Here is the link to this bat if you want it.
After cutting out about 8 small bats by hand, I was done with that technique. I traced the bat shape on my computer and imported it into sure-cuts-a-lot to cut it out on my cricut. WAY faster!
Since we've moved into this house (almost a year ago) I still haven't figured out what I want to do with the huge vaulted space above the tv. . . so for now, it's home to a lot of bats. I even wrapped them around the corner and down the hallway a little bit.
Any bets on if my husband even notices them when he gets home? :)
