My sister had that great idea to make bats for her walls at Halloween, so we followed suit. When it came time to take Halloween decorations down, however, I liked the bats too much to part with them. So they stayed. Then Christmas Time rolled around. I still didn't want to take them down. Mostly because I'm lazy and I didn't want to stand on a ladder merely to UNdecorate. So we found the most logical solution: make 47 tiny Santa hats with real cotton trim to transform them to Christmas bats. Duh.
