This week we used yarn again to make another Halloween critter, a bat. I believe you should try to use the supplies you have on hand and since we already had black yarn I came up with a way to create this little bat. Kinda cute isn’t he? You can even change him up a bit by adding some vampire teeth or making him a her by adding a cute tissue paper bow. Give it a try and see what you can turn your little bat friend in to!

  • Black Yarn
  • Cupcake Liner
  • Googly Eyes
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How To:

  1. Head over to my previous post and scroll down to see how to create your own pom-pom ball for the bat’s body. Pom-pom ball how to. Instead of tying it with white yarn as shown, use black for the bat.
  2. You should now have a completed black pom-pom ball to use for the bat’s body. (Click on photos below to see the larger and see the whole image.)
  3. Cut out the bottom of the cupcake liner.

  4. Cut two 2.5″ pieces from the liner edge and trim along the bottom to form the shape of a bat wing.

  5. Open a spot in the yarn and glue a wing on each side of the bat’s body.

  6. Glue on googly eyes.

  7. Hang up and enjoy!
