As I mentioned the main component of this wall are paper fans that I folded out of paper napkins. The orange zig zag and black and white napkins were from the Target dollar spot at $1 for 12 napkins which made 6 fans, and the black and white spider web napkins were from Michael’s craft store at 20 napkins for $2.99. The black and white hounds tooth paper fans were made using the same technique, but with wrapping paper instead (I already had this on hand from a few years ago).
To add a bit more visual interest and break up the paper fans a bit, I added store bought solid paper fans in orange and black, spider web paper fans from Michael’s ($2.99 for 3 of them), and black and orange honeycomb balls that I only opened half way so that they would adhere to the wall (these were from Target’s party section for around $2 each).
The final touch to top off the Halloween art wall are bats! I used a few vinyl bats that I cut out using my vinyl cutter as well as a few 3D paper bats that my sister traced and cut out of black poster board. I positioned the bats around the paper fans with a few flying out of the top of the instillation to make it feel alive and as if this is their nest and they are flying out for the night.
I am so happy with the way this turned out, and if you are keeping track, this entire thing cost me under $20! Yes, that is right, stunning and budget friendly! And as my friend pointed out, completely on theme for my daughters Halloween origami party. Paper folding for the win!
