Bats are a huge symbol of Halloween and if you’d like to make your own decorations, Halloween bat crafts could be the easiest of all. Naturally, like every other craft project, Halloween bat crafts are only as hard as you make them, so wel give you a few ideas to start with.
One of the simplest of Halloween bat crafts that you can make comes from a regular egg carton. Take the carton and cut out 3 of the egg cups ( keeping them together ) Take and cut out the front of the two outside egg cups to simulate wings. Draw a face on the middle egg cup, punch a hole in the top and draw a string thru it to hang from the ceiling or any other place. If you want to get actually fancy, spray paint your spider black and paste on googly eyes for a little additional fun.
For the subsequent proposal in the category of Halloween bat crafts, we have got a massive bat that you can hang from your trees outside. To begin with, you need an empty two liter soda bottle and a large black plastic trash bag. Wrap the bag round the bottle and secure with black electric tape to make the bat body. Close to the cap end of the bottle, pinch two little bunches of plastic and wrap an elastic band around to make the bats ears.
Next, take a white plastic lid and cut out fangs, tape in place and hitch red dot stickers for eyes. Cut open a second trash bag and lay flat. Cut out 2 bat wings. Lay the wings flat on the ground and place a straight stick such as a shish kabob stick just above the wing. Tape the 3 points of the wing to the stick with the electric tape. Repeat for the other wing and then securely tape both wings to the bats body.
To hang the bat, just nestle the sticks among the branches of a tree. If the weather is particularly windy or if you simply need to make certain the bat doesn’t fly away on its own, you may want to secure the bat to the tree with the electrical tape too. Having these bats hanging from your trees is bound to make your yard the scariest ever.
