A $1 Project

This very inexpensive project couldn't be easier. I got the inspirations from a picture I saw in the Country Living Magazine. Mine is not as substantial or outdoors, but for our small apartment, it does the trick. Older children that can use scissors can even help out with this project! It took about an hour to complete from start to finish. All I did was purchase two large, black poster boards from the Dollar store(.50 cents ea.) This entire project was only $1!!!!! I drew and cut out a bat and used that as a stencil to trace on several bats to my poster board. Then just start cutting!

My little collection of bats growing as I watched Sports Nation...Yep! I watch Sports Nation :)

Then, I used double sided tape the adhere them to the window. They look awesome at dusk!

I even put a few on the edges of the window and bent their wings to make then appear as if they are flying.

A fun little project that cost $1.

  1. Ooh, I like it. It's spooky. Thanks for linking up.

    btw, my button you have on your sidebar doesn't work but the one on the post does. The sidebar one must have been last weeks code. :-)

  2. So cute and such a statement for such a great price! I love it. And I love that you watch Sports Nation! My husband got me hooked on those ESPN shows when we had cable, and I miss them more than I miss any other shows (except maybe Iron Chef) now that we don't have cable! So, watch an extra Sports Nation for me. :)

    Stopping by from the Weekend Wrap Up. Have a great weekend!
