Halloween DIY Tutorial 2015: Hanging Bat

You will need:

Step 1:

Using the image as a guide, draw the wing and ear shapes onto a piece of scrap paper and use this as a template to trace onto your black EVA sheet. The wings are about 10 cm in length and the ears / headpiece around 8cm.

Step 2:

Cut the traced shapes from the black EVA sheet. Next, make a slot on each side of the bats body for the wings to fit into.

Step 3:

Cut six equal lengths out of the black chenille stem and push them into the bottom of the egg for the feet. Curl these bat feet around a pencil or brush to ensure your bat will hang in the way you like.

Step 4:

While it is still hanging, paint the entire bat black. 2 coats should cover the polystyrene nicely.

Step 5:

Stick the wings into the slots you made earlier. Cut a mouth out of the yellow EVA sheet and stick it in place. Lastly stick the googley eyes on.

Now your bat is ready to hang!
