Not All My Craft Projects Go To Plan

Over on Pinterest, I'd seen a fabulous craft to turn torches into bat signals.

I thought it would be fantastic to take this craft project and add a little Harry Potter flare to it.

I put the idea on my "to-do" pile and waited for the opportunity to present itself.

Over Christmas, I'd bought a Harry Potter personalised decal set so I could add my son's name on his Chromebook.  Along with the name, there were several HP symbols, so my first step to this craft was ready.

One day when I was in Halfords, I saw they were selling £5 torches.  I bought a couple and was ready to take on this bat signal craft.

It has not gone well.

The large £5 torches I bought have three bulbs inside which reflect through the decal sticker too much.

The smaller torch sort of worked but you could see the bulb shining brightly through the sticker.  I did wonder if it's because the stickers were orange?

My decal stickers are orange because that is my son's favourite colour, and the purchase was first and foremost for him.  I wonder if thicker and black stickers would make a difference?  I must add that to my to-do pile.

Can you guess who we are calling with our Harry Potter signal?
