Let’s start with a very simple DIY project. Want to decorate your space from floor to ceiling?! I don’t know about you, but I can’t recall seeing any lame ceiling fans in any haunted houses I’ve been to. Fans can be an eye sore for us detail-oriented (/”type A”) decorators. UNLESS, you use the ceiling fan to your advantage in your decor, hence, the bat wing fan!
Matt’s house has 3 fans (of course all in the common areas of our party), one in each living room and one in his kitchen. So I did this 3 times last year, but saved my wings to use again this year!
I saw this idea on Pinterest here for actual fan blades being sold on Etsy, but I’d say its a very easy DIY project, so I just “WING-ed” it! (GET IT?! Ha, so funny 🙂 )
1) Measure your fan blades length & width
2) Freehand bat wing long and wide enough to cover each blade
3) Cut out bat wing and use this as a stencil for the other fan blades
4) Use duct tape to adhere to fan
*Note – try not to turn on the fan as these are only made of poster board, however, I will note that Matt & I did this a few times and it looks pretty sweet 🙂
