and black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers, tis near Halloween.  Halloween is such a fun Holiday and I can never have/make enough decorations so I made a bat shaped treat container that can be used as a decoration once the goodies are gone. 

I have a tutorial on how this was made at THE HYBRID CHICK

And, I finished my sons costume just in time for his cub scout party.  We both love how it turned out and he won second second place in overall best costume, not bad for a bunch of bones!
I can't take credit for this idea though I made my son's costume quite a bit differently from the one I saw HERE.  The brilliant person who made the costume used a light weight modeling clay and it is incredibly cool looking.    I made my son's costume out of rolls of white craft foam.
Unfortunately, he couldn't wear the costume for his school party because they aren't allowed to wear masks.  Go figure. 

Have a good one!
