*The Bat Wall*


Instead of having a bat cave, I have a bat wall. It is the ultimate completion to my Halloween decorations. I have a huge wall in the house that is hard to decorate because of all the space. When I saw this template, I knew it would be perfect. The more bats the better! It does take time to trace and cut out the bat wings, but it is definitely worth it. I printed the template and traced it onto black cardstock (On sale at Michael’s for $4). I then cut out the wings, glued them together, bent the wings down and hung them up. Simple as pie. I want to make more to scatter throughout the house. Even on the front door would look so eerie, so many options to have fun with the bat wings!

I applied glue on the tab where the body of the bat is

I then took another wing and pressed the two together so they are twins

I also had a big helper to assist me. He mostly squished the bats but it is the thought that counts!

Once dry, I used tape to hang the bats on the wall

You can see I applied tape on the tip of the wing and let the bat hang freely. The tape shows up on camera more than to the naked eye.

How To Make:

  • Print the template pattern and cut out bat wing along lines
  • Trace onto black cardstock or construction paper with a sharpie or dark colored marker
  • Cut out the wings
  • Apply glue along the very edge of the body, not the wings
  • Attach another wing to the glue part so you have two wings glued together
  • Bend the wings down 
  • Let dry and hang using one sided, duck, or double sided tape
