Ballards Designs had their own version of hanging ghosts (3 for $42). No thanks!!! So I thought I would try to make my own. But I liked the idea of bats better.
I hit my favorite store for making my crafts - The Dollar Store and picked up my supplies.
A little bag of small rubber bats, A pack of round magnets, fishing wire, my glue gun and some random glitter nail polish.
I first tied the fishing wire around the head and knotted. I added a bit of glue to secure it in place. Then I took the fishing wire and tied it around the magnet, also adding a bit go glue from my handy glue gun.
Just to make it look a bit prettier, I touched on a bit of glitter polish to cover up the glue and wire on the magnet.
Now find a spot to hang them from. I have a vintage light fixture in my entry that worked great!
A little up shot to see how they hung on the metal base.
And now I have a bat chandelier. $3 makes a bit more sense then $42. Now I can put that extra money towards making more crafts!!!
