Every year, my family and I break out our big orange and black box full of Halloween decorations, cauldrons and punched aluminum candle holders. Folded and tucked into the side of the box are these sweet bats we made years and years ago. They’ve adorned several front doors, including our current home of almost ten years.
Halloween Bat Door Decoration
Super easy and adorable to boot, these anything-but-scary Halloween bats take about five minutes to whip up.
- Felt Bat Template
- 1 piece of black acrylic felt for each bat
- hot melt glue gun & glue
- google eyes
- round magnets
Gather your supplies
Fold the acrylic felt lengthwise in half. Pin the Bat pattern on the fold.
Cut around the bat shaped pattern, leaving the fold intact. Fold fabric out.
Use hot melt glue to attach google eyes, being careful to use only a dot of glue. Use pattern placement as a guide.
Use the same method to add the magnets to the back of the bat, using the placement shown on the pattern.
Two sizes of eyes.
Once the glue has dried, your batty friends are ready to display!
