DIY Halloween Bats

Updated: Oct 30, 2020

You don't need to spend tons of money in order to add a little bit of Halloween spirit with a style!



Halloween is around the corner...

We would like to spend more time with our families as the holiday season is here. Our favorite season of all times. At the same time, we all know that it comes with it's own challenges; and decoration is one of them. I'm not going to lie, I often find myself wandering between the aisles of halloween stores all frustrated and end up spending so much money.


This DIY Project is great to do as a family with the materials you can even find at home!



Materials needed:

  1. Black Cardboard

  2. Scissors

  3. Pencil

  4. Model Bat (made from a thick paper)

  5. Clippers (not necessary, can be used to pile papers)






Look at the location you want to place the bats and try to decide on the number of bats needed. Use the model bat to trace quickly on the cardboard. Use scissors to carefully cut the bat shapes.


After cutting is complete, fold each bat from half to give a flying effect and use double sided stickers to easily attach them on the walls. This method is great because it can also be removed easily without damaging the walls; but you can use another method to place them on the walls.






We're not stopping now, are we?

While we got into the spirit of Halloween, we can't stop but adding a few pumpkins out there. What's Halloween without Pumpkin painting am I right? Just be creative and have fun! #pumpkinpaintingideas






Spray and coat evenly...

Start painting a base with a color of your choice. We've used chalky spray paint for it and worked out pretty well. But oh boy, it wasn't super easy. Do it outdoors with a mask if you will choose this method and try not to breathe while spraying.











Wait for them to dry...

After passing the spray paint test, wait for them to dry at least an hour. If you don't have so much time, just read the instructions on the back, generally 15-20 mins is enough drying time for most of the spray paints.









The most fun part is doodling for me!

Now it's time for drawing your favorite Halloween classics depending on the base color, just get creative. Ghosts, bats, spooky eyes or just some geometric shapes depending on your style. See below what designs we ended up with! Share and inspire :)
