Simple Paper Bat Decorating
Bats, Bats, and Bats!
A simple inexpensive creative way to decorate anywhere in your home for Halloween is paper decorations! Paper bats is super simple and you can have the coolest decorative designs to hang on the wall or doors.
My display on my front door is done up in different sizes of bats. I made black and orange bats; even a purple bat. You can use just black paper for a simple flock of bats. Colored bats add a little more colorful effect if that is your desire. You can put bats on doors, walls, windows, coming up from a counter onto the wall, lamp shades, pillows and much more. Even decorate a white shower curtain or the mirrors with simple bat cut-outs for a batty bathroom. How about a bat hanging on a coat in the closet? You just might think it was real. The ideas are endless!
Have a fun time decorating BATTY!

A printer comes in handy for printing out BAT patterns from links that post them for FREE to use. I think that is nice to be able to find patterns online.
HP All-In-One Printer
I'm an HP fan so these are always my first choice in picking a printer out. There is a handy pop-up screen to see what your printer is doing.
HP Wireless Printer
Just like the one I have on my desk. It is wireless and printers really good. Using HP Print allows you to print form other wireless devices such as your phones and tablets. You can even print while out and about. How cool is that!
