Light Fixture Makeover: Spooky, Quick, & Temporary

The folks at Silhouette also sent me a roll of their black vinyl. I hadn’t actually used it…until this morning.

I downloaded a bat from their online store and then tiled 21 of them to a page.

I cut out 2 pages worth and then just started sticking!


It probably took me 15 minutes tops.


And once Halloween’s over? I’ll just peel ‘em off.

    I found out something cool. maybe you already knew this, but you can take ANY image online, download it into the Silhouette and then convert the image to a silhouette and cut out the outline for free. I thought that was awesome!!
