I am been thinking about cool Halloween Decor as Halloween is fast approaching. I wanted to create something easy so that my 3 year old could help. I ran across a bat wall idea on Pinterest a few months back and thought why not! The photograph I saw was using vinyl decals in the shape of bats but I wasn't ready to put decals all over my walls. I decided to find a bat shaped template online and cut bats out of black construction paper.
You can find a bat template online or use the one below!
Print the bat out and use it as a template. Trace the bat and cut out as many bats as you need from black construction paper. Once cut out, you can fold some of the wings inwards to make the bats more dimensional. Take double-sided tape and stick them to the wall.
Now I cheated just a bit! I didn't follow my own directions because while out at the a local dollar store I found bats already cut out! But if I didn't find them I would have totally made them myself! My daughter had a blast sticking them on the wall with me and folding the wings over.
Such a simple and great way to temporality decorate walls in your home! Take a look below for photos of my foyer wall with the bats!
