Halloween Hanging Bats

No Halloween cave is complete without hanging bats! Turn your living room into the ultimate Halloween hangout with these spookily crafty hanging bats.

No Halloween party cave is complete without the odd bat hanging around - create your own hanging bats to turn the spookiness right up!


  • Black Thick Card

  • Scissors / Craft Knife

  • String

  • Pen

  • White Pencil


  • Take your white pencil and draw out a spooky bat outline on your black card. You can make the bat as large or as small as you want.

  • Cut out the bat template on the card (watch your fingers!)

  • Take your bat cut out and score down the centre or at points along the wings to give your bat more movement and make it look more realistic.

  • Repeat the above steps until you have your desired number of spooky bats and punch a hole into the bottom of each of your bats.

  • Tie a piece of string to the bottom of each bat (your string length can vary according to your preference) and hang your bats upside down around your home.
