SPOOKY Bat Banner

It's me again. I am sad to see Halloween to go, but look forward to Thanksgiving and of course Christmas! I never posted my Spooky Halloween Banner, so I figured I should do it now, or wait a whole year! I love this banner! It turned out cute and it is super fun. I will look forward to getting it out every year!

The year Thong, and I moved into our house, my parents got me a gift card to one of my most favorite stores, Rod Works! I was ecstatic to see that it was for $200!!! So I ended up buying the mirror and shelf you see in the picture below. I am wishing they would have had the bigger shelves they have now, when I bought it, but I love the red color! I bought some of the smaller decorations too that you see - black drawers, green candlesticks and candles, the red clock.

The one thing I don't do is change out the items really for holidays. I am thinking I need to start though! I change it out for Christmas every year, but other than that, the items stay the same. I put my Halloween decorations on my high counter top, but next year, I think I will add them to the shelf. And maybe I can start adding to my Halloween decorations. I have hardly any.

The one thing with my banner is that it is heavy - which I didn't take into account when I was making it - so it weighs down too much to actually hang. I set it up on my shelf, but as you can see, there aren't any other Halloween decorations with it. But next year, I think it will be cute when it's all Halloween!

Here are the pics:
