#1: Bat Wing Fan

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 🙂 )

Enjoy!

DIY Halloween Decor Bat Wing Fan

Instructions:

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  🙂

31 Halloween Projects

If you haven’t checked out my post from last year’s Halloween party, let me warn you:  I am a little bit of a Halloween fene.  Matt and I threw our first annual Halloween party last year, and let’s just say I got a “wee bit” into DIY decorating 🙂  This year I thought it’d be fun to post 31 Halloween projects/decorating, incorporating some techniques I used last year with some new ones that I will try this year.

Rather than making every single post in October Halloween related, I will incorporate these 31 Halloween projects from now until Halloween.  Trust me from experience, it’s nice to get a head start on the decorating!

Check out my Halloween party post here from last year, and stay tuned & keep checking back for the 31 Halloween projects coming soon! 🙂

DIY Halloween Party Decor

My initial thought was to blog post about all my Halloween party projects as I did them so we could all gear up for this spooky holiday together.  Well, I bit off a little more than I could chew (typical me, as you will soon realize).  SO, I am going to go a little bit in reverse.  I am going to post pictures of the final outcome of our party and then work backward in my DIY posts of how it all came to life (or death, ha!)  I hope you like the outcome!
