πŸŽƒ Swarm of Bats DIY Wall Decoration | Country Hill Cottage


Let’s continue our Bad Bats Halloween series
with a spooky swarm of paper bats! They look great as wall décor, and we mixed
regular cardstock and black glitter paper to vary the textures. The download link for the template we used
in this quick and easy to do craft tutorial is in the description. Be careful, though, they might bite! Print the template on self-adhesive paper. Then remove the backing of the paper and attach
it to the cardstock or the back of the glitter paper. Going from the middle outwards, use your hands
or a bone folder to remove air bubbles. With intricate ornaments like these bats,
it’s best to cut out roughly around the shape first. You can then cut away any excess more easily. Using a metal ruler and the bone folder, make
score marks in the middle of the bat and on each wing. There are thin grey lines that will help you
find the right spots. To give the bats more dimension, fold the
body and the wings in opposite directions. Go over each crease with the bone folder to
get a crisp fold. If you don’t have these tools, simply fold
the bats freehand. Use double-sided tape on the back of the bats
to attach them to a wall. We arranged the bats in a swarm flying around
our paper moon, no pun indented. Instead of using the bats as a wall decoration,
you could also fix them on tree branches and display them in a vase. Thanks so much for watching and please subscribe
