This week, we are having so much fun on the Glue Arts blog , “pinning” photos from the photo sharing site Pinterest, and using those photos as the inspiration for a project. With all the decorating, designing, and craft ideas floating around on Pinterest, the creative possibilities are endless. My only problem was picking just one inspiration photo. 🙂

As many of you already know, I am a HUGE fan of Halloween. Love, love, love all things sweet, spooky, creepy, ghoulish, and fun about this holiday. I absolutely adore this amazing dining room wall I found while searching through the pages of Halloween photos on Pinterest. I had already had a similar idea of using Glue Arts Accent It All Vinyl to add some festive accents around my house. Now after being inspired by this amazing room, I, too, have a festive and spirited look in my Halloween home.
All I needed to complete this project was 3 sheets of Blackout Accent It All Vinyl and some free bat templates from the internet. I simply traced my bats onto the back of the 12×12 vinyl sheets, and trimmed them out. A much easier task for those of you with die cutting systems. But for me, just a couple of hours in front of the TV, and all my bats were ready to go.
I used a variety of sizes so that I could get the look of the bats flying off into the distance. Started with the biggest bats on the right, and wrapped them around the room in decreasing size.
Peel. Stick. Done.
So fast and so easy! And the best part is, the vinyl is easily re-positionable, making perfect placement a snap. If you don’t like where you put something, peel it back up, move it, and stick it on again. The vinyl will cling to almost any surface including walls, windows, mirrors, painted and glossy surfaces, cabinetry, frames, computers….you name it! And, it’s completely re-usable! So I plan on storing my bats on sheets of wax paper and using them again next year. I SO love that!
As a matter of fact, I loved this idea so much, I made a few more bats for my bathroom mirror.
My head is spinning with ideas….
