My number one thought from this: I hate being in an apartment - so many things are ugly and I can't do anything about it! There are these little hooks that I had to work around, one isn't even used anymore and is just there to tick me off and the other is still used which means I come home to fliers on my door which jeopardize my bats! I got the bats idea here and the fabric wreath was spurred from here. I wanted to do some chevron, but couldn't find any chevron fabric and didn't want to wait to order it (even though it was early September when I made this so I definitely had time!). But I really fell for this plaid, and it feels less fad-ish.
I got a wreath form from Jo-Ann's and about 1/4 yard of fabric (which was more than enough). I cut the fabric into 1 1/2 " strips and hot glued one end onto the wreath and wrapped it around at an angle. I got the whole thing covered with two strips. After I made a little bow and hot glued it on. All I had was a yellow ribbon lying around my house and decided that it looked good enough to hang it.
And the bats I just cut out of construction paper and stuck them on with sticky tack. Some of the bats ended up looking ridiculous, but in the mass they were fine.
