Paper Bats: Halloween DIY

Paper Bats

Bats are everywhere!  Need a quick idea to set up your Halloween entertainment space?  Make some paper bats to adorn your walls and ceilings.  I can’t take the credit on this one.  My friend, and Lilies and Loafers blogger, Ashley, did this last year in her apartment:

They looked so cool!  So, I made them for our apartment this year:

And for my family’s annual Halloween party:

These paper bats are really easy to make.  First, you’ll want to fold a piece of black construction paper in half.  Then draw an outline of a bat – a half a bat – from the crease of the paper.  This way, when you cut the bat out, you’ll have a full bat – make sense?  I doubled up the sheets so I could make quadruple the number of bats in one sitting.  I was able to fit 2 bats on each sheet of paper.  I made 60 bats for the apartment and it took about 30-45 minutes to draw and cut out.
