WINGED SUR­PRISE

Country Sampler Autumn Decorating SIP 2018 - - Inside - DE­SIGNED BY DAWN MERCEDES BAR­RETT. PHO­TOS COURTESY OF BLOG.GLUEDOTS.COM.

In just 15 min­utes, you can turn a run-ofthe-mill lamp shade into a creepy bat cave! Dawn Bar­rett at the Glue Dots blog says these con­cealed crit­ters are sure to de­light un­sus­pect­ing fam­ily mem­bers. Use an elec­tronic die-cut­ting ma­chine to cut out sev­eral sizes of bats from black card stock. The largest one here has a 7" wing­span, while the small­est has a 4½" wing­span. Use Re­mov­able Glue Dots to se­cure the bats on the in­side of your lamp shade. Make sure the pa­per is not near or touch­ing the light bulbs, some of which can get hot over time. Turn on your lamp when it gets dark for a Hal­loween sur­prise.
