These Hanging Halloween Bats Are Here To Add Spooky Charm To Your Yard
Something has us in the spookiest of Halloween spirits this year, be it all the fantastic fall pumpkins we're adding to our porch or the promise of enough candy to last us through Christmas. We're planning pumpkin hunts, decorating haunted cookie houses, and going all out on the haunted curb appeal to charm neighbors and trick-or-treaters alike—starting with cobwebs draped over our bright yellow mums and these spook-tacular hanging bats that look understatedly eerie when hung from your trees.
You'll catch the paper bat trend all over Instagram, with flurries of vampy black bats accenting walls and mantels; but this take on the interior trend brings the faux bats where they belong: outside. Hang from Southern magnolia trees and moss-draped oaks, and you're halfway to hosting a ghost tour on the streets of Savannah—well, without the ghouls. For anyone trying to revamp the Halloween season this year, it makes an easy option that will garner oohs, aahs, and a "boo!" or two from passersby.
As far as selecting your spookiest cavalry of Halloween bats for all of your outdoor decorating needs, this popular set of hanging bats is some of Amazon shoppers' favorite outdoor décor for fall. Waterproof, durable, and pre-drilled for easy hanging, these Halloween bats can bring the spirit to any home. The bats, which come in a set of 12 that vary in size, appear to be floating oh so frightfully.
Reviewers recommend hanging these bats with invisible string or wire to trees, porch ceilings, and even off the roof for extra flair—teachers love them for classroom decoration, too—with one shopper also suggesting to glue glow-in-the-dark eyes onto each to make the bats pop at night.
To ensure you're celebrating All Hallow's Eve with just enough fun and fright, these outdoor hanging bats are a surefire way to get into the spirit. (SHOP THE SET: $21.95; amazon.com)
