Halloween Ideas: Easy Bat Display

October has arrived! I’ve been working on my Halloween ideas for awhile now and I’m excited to have put on the finishing touches over the weekend. Today I’m sharing an easy Halloween bat display in my entry way. I used the spooky glam lantern as my centerpiece, then added a few items that went with the glam and rustic feel I was going for.


Ready to get started on one of my Halloween ideas?
Supplies needed to make this easy bat display:

Halloween-Ideas-Easy-Bat-Display-Crafts-Unleashed-2Have you noticed all of the 3D bat displays around? I’ve wanted to make one for the last few years and now I’m wondering what took me so long. This project was very quick and easy to complete using my Silhouette Cameo. I found a bat shape in the online store, then cut three different sizes of bats. I folded them in half to create a dimensional look, then used double-sided tape to adhere them to the wall. You will want to make sure you use a strong but removable adhesive that won’t damage the wall paint. Another idea is to use foam squares.

    Your Halloween decos are great, love the whole arrangement. I have a couple lanterns but haven’t really used them except to sit on a table, boring. Love the style of your lanterns.
    I have an arrangement out on front porch on our patio table but it’s Fall not Halloween. We don’t get trick or treaters at all and all the grandkids are too big now. No fun anymore dadgumit anyway. Ah well I’ll leave it to the young families at this point in our lives. I make lots of Fall decos but not Halloween. Used to tho.
    Enjoy your young kids and all the Halloween fun.
