Sugar Creek Hollow: Things with Wings

Hello Friends!!
Welcome to "Things with Wings" week at
When creating your vintage and shabby chic treasures this week make sure to add some
"Things with Wings"  Then head on over to Sugar Creek Hollow and link up with us!
I decided to be a little different this week and chose to have a "Halloween Bat" as my things with wings :0)
I used the Gecko Galz digital paper pack Hocus Pocus.  I created a bat template in Inkscape, and then used it to cut out the digital papers.
Pin It!
I used some fabulous ribbon and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon to decorate my Halloween Bat and make it "SpOoktaCularLy VinTage."
I used some of my favorite jewelry wire to create the hanger, along with some beads and Swirl Orange ribbon to create a fabby little bow.
I used my crop o dile to punch some holes to thread the wire through, and to add a little Halloween surprise to the bottom of the bat.
Orange grommets, beading wire with purple beads, brown sugar bakers twine, orange swirls ribbon,
and a antique bronze bat trinket finish off the bottom of my Halloweeny Ornie.
I just love how the bat itself turned out.
  I used the orange stripe "Hocus Pocus"  digital Paper from Gecko Galz for my background.  Next I glued down many fabby trims from Really Reasonable ribbon, starting off with the 1.5" Black netting, then the vintage Penelope lace trim, added some of the May Arts black leaves, and pumpkins.  I found a vintage black button added some of the spooktacular orange mini pom pom trim and Halloween baker's twine to spice it up!  It is going to look fabulous with the other Halloween Goodies on my Halloween tree!
I can't wait to see what kind of 
"Things with Wings" you use on your Vintage and Shabby creations, and link up with us at
