Designed by: Dawn Mercedes Barrett
Time: 15 minutes
Level: Beginner level
Size: Large bat measures 7 inches across; small bat measures 4.5 inches.
Dress up your home with night time Halloween festivities that will delight or spook an unsuspecting family member. With a flick of the switch, your run of the mill lamp shade will have creepy bats hovering inside!
Here’s what you need:
Here’s what you do:
- Select the desired bat silhouette you wish to use for your lap shade.
- Use your electronic die cutting machine to cut out several sizes. The largest bat in the example has a 7 inch wing span. The smallest bat has a 4.5 inch span.
- Use Removable Glue Dots to place the bats on the inside of the lamp shade. IMPORTANT: Make sure the paper is not near or touching the light bulbs which can get hot over time. Tip: Use an automatic lamp timer to control how long the lamp is on and to make sure the light bulbs do not overheat.
- Turn on your lamp when it gets dark!
Tip: Set this up when the family is out of the house in order to get the highest spook factor.
