On a recent trip to Dollar Tree I found a roll of black shelf liner. I knew there had to be something I could do with it in my Halloween crafting, so I grabbed it. It wasn’t until weeks later that I came up with an idea: bat wall stickers! The key to this project is using repositionable spray adhesive. Unlike permanent spray adhesive, the repositionable kind is more like the glue on a Post-It note. You can use it on your walls without damaging the paint!
- Shelf liner, $1
- Bat template, free
- Craft knife or utility knife, on hand
- Repositionable spray adhesive, on hand or about $5 and up
Total: $1 and up
I found a bat shape to use as a template by doing a Google image search for “bat shape outline,” which I printed to the size I wanted and cut out.
Lay the template on the shelf liner. Using a sharp craft knife or utility knife, cut around the edges of the template.
Repeat until you have the desired number of bat shapes. (You can get a whole bunch of them out of a single roll of shelf liner!)
Working on top of some newspaper to protect your work surface, spray the bats with repositionable adhesive. Wait about a minute, then apply them to the wall. When the season is over, they should peel right off without any harm!
