For the decoration around the fireplace, I just moved a small bench in front, put a bunch of pumpkins together, and added a ladder to increase interest, and let my son harvest corn stalks in his garden to get a little taste of the harvest . I also used a bit of raffia to create a natural nest-like appearance for the pumpkin. Vintage wooden cutting boards tied in natural wood elements. complete.
Next is the interesting part.
For our Halloween crafts, I know I want to make paper bats. I used paper bats last year, and they created a dramatic effect with no effort, and the number of visits to the craft shop was zero. bonus. They are simple, fun and versatile.

Here is how I made Halloween craft paper bats:
The size of the image is too big for what I want. In addition, it is too large to fit on 8" x 10" construction paper. Remember that you need to fold the paper in half so that the width of the template must fit the folded paper, and the center of the bat is aligned along the crease.
To create the required size, I use my copier and try to copy at 50% first, then 35%, etc., until I find the right size. For this look, please copy the template several times at 65%, 50%, and 35%. According to your specific needs, you can use any size they are suitable for. I like this relaxed flexibility. Another bonus!
Next, I asked the boys to start cutting out the template. As mentioned above, all you need to do is to fold the paper in half and align the center of the bat along the crease. You can separate them according to the size of the template to make multiple bats on each page. My kids decided to try to trace the image and found it easier, but I found it easier to keep the paper template stable and cut around it.
Once the bats were cut and I had a bunch of different sizes to choose from, I took out my ladders and started erecting them. The little bat has one glue spot, and the big bat has two. As for the design or pattern you create, it's all up to you. One thing you don't want is to make the bats look like they are just among the mobs on the wall. Instead, what you want to create is a sense of movement. The idea is to create the appearance that they are flying (randomly) but gathered in a certain way and swooping in a certain direction.
