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.
