I did a Wall Of Bats the past few years and I loved them so much I decided to do them again this year! Only this year, I got to use my silhouette cameo!

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 or 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 cameo machine because I get a precision cut but the sticky cutting mat also curls the bats wings as I pull them off… win-win.

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.
