A Bit Batty

We are in full force halloween mode now. I have bought all the costumes, bought or made halloween clothes, and have the house decorated as much as I can. I am still just trying to get our home put together and decorated for the every day so I can't say I have gone all out inside. But I did put some thought and effort into the outdoor decorations. A couple of weeks ago, I saw this in Country Living.

I decided I wanted my door to look similiar. So, I bought some orange mums for $12.00 at Lowes and stuck them in a pot that I discovered while moving. And, I bought an orange "Spooky" pick at Hobby Lobby for half off.

I bought a "Boo" door hanger at Hobby Lobby for half off of $8.00!

I made the bats out of black felt from this template here.

We grabbed some duck tape and started hanging while Lucy watched from the inside.

And voila...

Our house is now batty!!!! (yes, pun intended)
