As always, these deals vanish Wednesday at midnight 
Eastern time so hurry to get yours!


Today I am using Samantha's Bat Circle Set to create 
hanging bat strings that I am using as part of my Halloween decorations!


I brought the file into Studio and then ungrouped the cut.  I removed everything except the center bat then I resized it to 6.510" x 2.785" and cut five per string (15 in total).


I cut three 45" pieces of Black Double-Faced Satin Ribbon.



Then tied a loop in each end, cutting the end into an angle as shown below:


Next I sew each bat to the ribbon and then trim all of the strings.


...Now you are ready to hang your bat strings!
I decided to trim this set so they were all different lengths.


and I liked mine so much I decided to make another set to hang on our Cemetery Gate!



I think these would be amazing hanging in a doorway 
with multiple strings like a walk through curtain too!

Your next stop on the hop is Guiseppa Gubler!

As always, I LOVE your project!! I would also love the free SPOOKY SVG file you are giving away, but I already subscribe to your blog, I didn't see a link for another newsletter, and I don't know how to leave my name in the Rafflecopter field.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. :)
