How To Make Halloween Paper Straw Bats

Supplies Used:

  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Halloween paper straws
  • Black card stock
  • Bakers twine
  • Glue
  • Wiggly eyes
  • Scissors

Print a bat template from on-line or draw your own.   Cut out four bats from corrugated cardboard.

Next, use the same pattern and cut out the bat bodies using black card stock.

Glue the bat bodies to the cardboard using craft glue.  We used Elmer’s Craft Bond All-Purpose Glue.

Two paper straws were used for each bat.  I lined the straw up in the grove in the cardboard and cut each straw to size and glued it to the cardboard with the craft bond glue.

Glue on wiggly eyes and add a loop of bakers twine for hanging.    If you want, you can add black paper to the back side, or paint it black.

Aren’t these cute?  They are so easy and inexpensive to make.  Which is your favorite?
