Front Door: Happy Haunting

**Featured on iVillage
{The Best DIY Halloween Decor
from Around the Web }**

I finally made my Halloween Front Door Decor today when Kate was taking a nap.
I really like how it turned out, even though it wasn't what I was planning on doing in the first place.
I have other plans up my sleeve with using that fun Orange with white polka dot fabric!!
The middle of the bat is from a card that I made years ago and I just "repurposed" it. 
It says "Happy Haunting" with orange bling around it.
I printed off the bat from Graphics Fairy.  She has some fabulous Halloween Pictures to download!
I traced my patterns onto my trusty ol' foam core that I always have around.
I used a Christmas Magnet board that I have as a template for the background.  I always thought it looked like Halloween design to me. :)
Have a great day!
