Branches and Bats on Thursday Favorite Things

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things Party

Thursday Favorite Things. Share NOW. #linkyparty. #TFT #thursdaayfavoritethings #eclecticredbarn

Happy Thursday  dear friends. I have been doing some fall creating. I need to get up in the attic and bring down my fall decorations, but that hasn't happened yet. Hopefully, soon.

In the meantime, I put together a couple of projects. One of which is my Bats and Branches project. You can see the complete tutorial here. It is very inexpensive and everything comes from the Dollar Tree.

Bats and Branches on Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Despite the warm weather, I have begun to work on some fall decor. I am jealous of all the wonderful fall and Halloween posts you have been sharing, so I decided to make a Halloween decoration.

This project was quite easy and very inexpensive. You can find the complete directions here.

It's Monday and Time for You're The Star

Welcome to You're The Star - Creative Feature Week

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We are still quite hot and lots of rain. They said cooler weather is coming the end of October. Yikes, that seems so far away. I am ready for cool temps.

Saturday and Time to Party at Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to the Happiness is Homemade Link Party

I hope your weekend is going well. Ours has been very nice although we have had a lot of rain. Each day around 3 or 4 it rains. Well, it is the rainy season, so what can you expect? Fortunately, we have not had any hurricanes so far. I hope it stays that way. 

I'm so glad that you're here to inspire and be inspired by all of the greatness shared on this week's party! If you missed last week's party, you can check it out here.

Bats, Branches and Bows

Bats, Branches and Bows

I have a very inexpensive project for you and everything comes from the Dollar Tree and your back yard. I call it my bats, branches and bows project. 

Bat, Branches, and Bows. Share NOW.#Halloween, #halloweendecor, #halloweendecorations, #DollarTreeCraft, #eclecticredbarn

I had to start creating some Halloween decor. I kept seeing all of the posts about fall and Halloween so when I went into the Dollar Tree the other day, I found these packages of bats. 

Bat, Branches, and Bows. Share NOW.#Halloween, #halloweendecor, #halloweendecorations, #DollarTreeCraft, #eclecticredbarn

The great thing about these bats was that they had clips on the back so I could easily attach them to branches.

Although I liked the bats, I thought I would paint their eyes red. I had some red paint and dabbed it on. You don't need to do this if you don't want to. Hopefully, you can see their red eyes in this picture. 

Bat, Branches, and Bows. Share NOW.#Halloween, #halloweendecor, #halloweendecorations, #DollarTreeCraft, #eclecticredbarn

I headed in the back yard for some branches. I found one that had some moss on it. That would work well. I gather a couple more sticks. Hubby gave me this blue/green vase on my birthday with flowers in it. Although it is new, I like the shape and color.

Bat, Branches, and Bows. Share NOW.#Halloween, #halloweendecor, #halloweendecorations, #DollarTreeCraft, #eclecticredbarn

I did place some floral foam in the bottom to hold the branches.  Once the branches were secured, I started to add the bats. 

Bat, Branches, and Bows. Share NOW.#Halloween, #halloweendecor, #halloweendecorations, #DollarTreeCraft, #eclecticredbarn

Of the 4 packages of bats, I used all of them except for 2. I needed something more.  A bow around the vase. I also found this at the Dollar Tree. First I tied some ribbon around the vase and then made a bow and attached it.

While at the store, I also found these Halloween shot glasses, at least that's what I think they are. I wasn't really sure what I was going to use them for, just bought them. 

Bat, Branches, and Bows. Share NOW.#Halloween, #halloweendecor, #halloweendecorations, #DollarTreeCraft, #eclecticredbarn

I put a tea light in them and put them around the vase.

So for $6 I was able to create my Bats, Branches and Bows. I am so excited that I created my first fall/Halloween project. Maybe I will go in the attic and get my fall and Halloween stuff down.

Happy Thursday and the first one in September. This year is going by so fast. I sort of feel like I was just working on Halloween decor and here I am thinking about it again. Yikes! 

I love seeing all of the fall and Halloween posts. I am starting to get in the fall mood even though the temps are still high. If I wait for for the temps to cool down, it will be after Christmas. lol!

Enjoy the rest of your week and have a great weekend.

September and the Wonderful Wednesday Party

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Here it is September. Can you believe it? I see all of the fall and Halloween decor ideas and I am trying to get there, but it is hard when it is so hot. Maybe I should turn my air-conditioning down and make some Halloween items.  lol!

Have a great week ahead!

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things Party

Thursday Favorite Things. Share NOW. #linkyparty. #TFT #thursdaayfavoritethings #eclecticredbarn

Happy Thursday dear friends and the first day of September.  I just came back from a few says with my friend in Miami. We always have such a great time together. 

An update on my kitchen. They brought the third counter top on Saturday and we were so excited that it would all get done. Initially, things didn't go well, but then they seemed to get better. Unfortunately, the guy was playing with the sink and dropped it and cracked the corner. I couldn't believe it. 

After talking with the contractor, we decided to just screw the sink in and not caulk it and then finish the rest. They ordered a new sink and it to come today. Hopefully, they can install it by this weekend. At least we have a functional kitchen. 

The new appliances came on Sunday. So we are moving in the right direction. One of these days. lol!

Enjoy the rest of your week and have a great weekend.

Happy Thursday dear friends.  I am having a great week since I am finally well.  The weather is still quite hot here in central Florida.  I love looking at all of the fall and Halloween posts, but it is really hard to think about fall when it is 95 degrees and the heat index is around 103. 

Just an update on the kitchen, half of my kitchen is finished while the other have is not done. They have put the counter top in twice, but has been wrong each time. On the second install, they cracked my sink when they tried to take out the countertop. 
They ordered another sink, but unfortunately, it was cracked when it arrived. 
Needless to say, the side that is not done is where the sink is. so we have not have any water in the kitchen. We are so frustrated. I can't believe it has taken this long.

We delayed having the new appliances installed until the end of August. so they come this weekend, and we still don't have countertop on that side where the dishwasher will go. It has certainly stretched our patience.  

Enjoy the rest of your week and have a great weekend.

Happy Thursday dear friends.  I am finally back home and so delighted to be back. I was doing great after having covid and then after being home for only 2 days, I got a full blown cold. I think I got it because of the change in weather and I was not in air conditioning for over two weeks. Whatever, the reason, I got it.

I have been knocked on my butt, first with covid and now with a cold. Hopefully, I will be all better soon.

Enjoy the rest of your week and have a great weekend.
