This is definitely the busiest week of the year at my house. We spent the weekend laying carpet in our garage. Yes, you read that correctly…in the garage. Ha ha. We have a pumpkin carving party every year, and we don’t want our guests to freeze their tootsies off by sitting on the freezing garage floor while they carve their masterpieces, so we lay carpet down for the party.

I ran across this tutorial this morning at MADE (definitely one of my favorite sites out there), and I could not help but share. I am going to be sad when Halloween is over! I am definitely doing this one (probably next year when I don’t have 60 pumpkins waiting to be carved). :)

    Go figure…I have not checked google reader in a long time. 5 minutes after I cut a bunch of FULL bat silhouettes, I checked my reader and see this with a much easier half template ha ha. We are having a huge Halloween party and I am doing this on one of my walls. Your wall looks great!

    Thanks to you, I've been reading MADE every single day all year. I LOVED her bat wall! I wish I had time to do this!

    Can't wait to see your pumpkins. Don't you wish they lasted from year to year? :)
