Swarm of Bats Decorated Pumpkin

I can’t believe Halloween is only a few weeks away! All my decorations are up and I have to tell you this is pumpkin turned out so cute, it’s my new favorite decoration! At first, I thought I wanted to do an orange pumpkin with black bats because…bats are black, right? But when I saw this black pumpkin at the craft store I knew I needed to use it. I love the orange bats on it. It’s a little different and unexpected, what do you think?

The best part…I made this spooky little pumpkin in less than 20 minutes and it cost no more than $10!

Here’s what you will need:
– a styrofoam black pumpkin
– around 20 orange bats cut from card stock in a variety of shapes
– glue dots
– Silhouette Cameo

Use your Silhouette to cut out your bat shapes in lots of different sizes. I did find that I used more of the smaller bats and just a few large bats for this project. Use a black fine tip marker to give the cute little bats eyes and gently fold up the wings to give it a 3D effect.

Attach each orange bat to the pumpkin using a small glue dot. I started with the big ones at the top and worked my way down using the medium and smaller bats.
