1. Cut 2 sizes of bats out of black cardstock.
2. Cut a hill and a spooky house out of black poster board. Then paint yellow windows with black lines for the window panes on the house.
5. Tape one end of the string to the left bat wings and on end to the right bat wings, so the bats hang still.
7. Place small pumpkins and gourds on the mantel and hang a fall banner on the front of the mantel to complete the scene.
