Bat Chandy


I wanted to spook out the dining room a little more for Halloween but was kind of at a loss after the buffet redo. Our dining room is very basic. Table... check. Buffet...Check. Chandy...Check. That's it. The necessities. So, since the buffet is already tricked out, my next stop was the chandy. I found a free font of Halloween dingbats to download and import into my SCAL software. I put several bats on the page and cut them out of black vinyl.


I transformed our chandelier from this



to this...





Easy Peasy! I love how the amber color of the shades glow and I'm so glad I found a bat silhouette that has eye holes. The light shines right through them making them super spooky!



The cobb webs are because I hate dusting for effect.
