My bats are made out of card stock and I used this bat template from a different Martha Stewart project. I added eyes to my bats in the Silhouette Studio program.
If you do not have a cutting machine to cut your bats, you can always cut them by hand. I cut my own last year out of construction paper.
Just fold your paper in half and cut along a template like this. I was able to get 3 bats out of each sheet of paper.
You can save yourself some time by cutting multiple bats at once – fold and cut 4-5 sheets of paper at one time.
I like using the machine because I get a precision cut, but the sticky cutting mat also curls the bats wings as I pull them off so they stand out on the wall.
Once you have your bats, just tape and stick.
Last year I used double sided tape, this year I just used the first tape I found.
You can see my Wall Of Bats from 2011 along with other Halloween decorations like pom-pom balls and a giant spider HERE.
