Are you looking for the perfect Halloween decoration? Not too scary, and easy to make? Well, we’ve got just the project for you!
This bat garland is so fun, and if you aren’t really into bats, you could try making black cats, pumpkins, or any other Halloween creature you’d like!
You could also try making this with paper, rather than felt. But felt will help the garland last from year to year.
How to Make A DIY Bat Garland
- Trace your bats
You can find a bat template online, or draw one on card stock or cardboard. Then trace your bats onto the felt.
- Cut out your bats
Use scissors to cut all of the felt bats out.
- Create your garland
Then, sew the bats together. You can sew just one long stitch straight through the center of each to connect them.
You can hang the bat garland on a wall inside…
Or out on the front porch hanging out with the pumpkins!
These bats are perfect and we especially love how they move in the breeze. Pretty awesome as far DIY Halloween decorations go!
