Bat Halloween Decorations
Last year was our first Halloween party and over all it went really well. The food was great and the company even better but I really slacked on the decor. :( My decorations were limited to just one room of the house. This year I’m determined to carry the spoooooooky Halloween theme throughout the entire house. The cheapest (and most fun) way to accomplish that is by creating my own DIY decorations! With Martha Stewart I just may be able to pull it off. I love these Clothes Pin Bats because I can put them on things that may be hard to decorate otherwise like lamps, curtains, and picture frames.

Black construction paper
Mini hole punch or pushpin
Black spray paint
Create Your Clothes Pin Bat
1. Spray paint the clothes pins black and allow to dry while you work on the rest of the project.
2.Trace the template onto a piece of oak tag. Cut out the tracing. If you’re good at drawing, try using the template as a base idea and then free hand your different bats.
3. Trace the bat templates onto black construction paper with the white pencil and then cut out. Each clothespin will require 2 bat cutouts.
4. Use the hole punch or pushpin to make eyes in each cutout – To make your bats even spookier cut out tiny white or red eyes out of scrap paper and glue them on.
5. Use your glue stick to glue two bat cutouts together at JUST at the wing tips.
5. Place a dab of craft glue onto the center of each side of the clothespin. Carefully slip a clothespin between two bat cutouts. Pinch bats to clothespin for a few seconds, until glue holds.
Thanks, Martha Stewart.
