During each October, my home always fills with orange and black color decoration. This year, besides the Bat swarming wall, I have made another Halloween theme to add into my collections; a set of pumpkin, spider and bat felt coasters.
These felt coasters are easy to make and can be done within an evening. Templates are included for free download and ready to print. So, if you need an urgent coaster for the upcoming Halloween, try this out.
In order to top up the excitement of the spooky Halloween, there is also a recipe to make the eye-balls cocktail shown in the picture. With these Halloween coasters, eye-balls cocktail, pumpkin face cheesecake, and some store-bought treat, now you can call for a last-minute small Halloween party … oh, don’t forget to decorate a bat swarming wall to surprise your guests.
