A swarm of black bats on the mantel is one of my favorite ways to transform my living room for Halloween. Just a few minutes of decorating the wall and my space is nearly ready for the holiday. My daughters love to stick the bats in place and I love the under $10 price tag and quick setup. Once Halloween is over, simply remove the bats and store them until next year. My thin plastic set has lasted several years without any signs of wear. Here are my favorite Halloween bat decorations—they're all available online now.

This year, I split my set in two and decorated both my living room wall and front door. I find it's best to use removable adhesive dots (like these Removeable Glue Dots, $4, Walmart) to attach them outdoors.

If you're planning to display your Halloween bat decorations outside, look for cutouts made from weather-proof plastic or PVC. This 60-piece set include four different shapes and sizes of bats plus removeable wall stickers to hang indoors or out. Before hanging, gently crease the bat wings to create a 3D design.
