DIY Halloween Crafts – Build a Bat (With template)

DIY Halloween Crafts – Build a Bat (With template)

Hey guys…

So Halloween is just around the corner, so if there’s ever been a good time to do your Halloween crafts, it’s now!!*

Here is a template for the cutest little bat that you can download here ….



After downloading your template you can start by cutting out all the pieces…

You can use Dovecraft’s A4 Black card as this pack has 10 sheets inside and is nice and thick, perfect for making this adorable little Halloween accessory. 

After cutting out all my shapes, I started with the body of my bat by adding some craft glue

Stick the 2 ends of the paper making a perfect cylinder.

Fold the ends of the wings slightly so they will stick to the body, making it look like the bat is flying around.


After adding the wings I used bobby pins to keep the wings in place while the glue dries, which only took a few minutes.

While the wings were drying, I started sticking the rest of the face on. (You can either use the eyes from the template or you can get creative and cut out your own eyes from different paper. With this one i made my own eyes since it was the second one I made and I did not want to print the template twice)

I then went on to stick the little ears and feet and removed my bobby pins. Using a Black Promarker I added some details to the eyes and it was done!!* 

There you have it. A cute little bat that will look perfect with the rest of your Halloween décor.

You can also add some string so you can hang them from the ceiling.

I hope you enjoy making this.

Take care xx
