DIY Halloween Bat Garland

by - October 12, 2019

I have a great craft to share with you guys today. It's my first Halloween DIY decoration of the year, it's all about these cute paper bats. They were so easy and affordable to create that anyone can make them. Including my 4 yr. old son (of course with a little help.) This DIY takes less than 30 minutes to make and is perfect for hanging anywhere inside your home. Even outdoors, just make sure to make the bats out of craft foam so they can last threw the rain. Learn how to make your own cute paper bats down below!
