Eek! Just a few more days until HALLOWEEN! We have already had our community Trunk-or-Treat (do you do that where you live?), our Fall Festival (costumes welcome!) and our friends adults-only couples Halloween bash soooo we are ready for Tuesday the 31st! We start with a driveway potluck and leave the husbands to grill and pass out candy while the wives take the littles trick-or-treating… I can hardly wait! Since Arizona has TWO full weeks of fall break, we hid from our summer like weather we’re still enjoying having and the kids and I made this cute bat garland for less than $5… and under an hour! Note that it would have taken me 10 minutes total but hey, we’re making memories right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Cute and EASY Bat Garland, made from ornaments in just minutes... and less than $5!

In case you missed this original post on BeckyHiggins.com, here it is for you!

Materials needed:

  • Wooden Bat Ornaments x4 ($.98/each at Walmart or OT has them unfinished for a steal!)
  • Twine or string or yarn (roughly 2.5′)
  • Drill with drill bit (1.7 size)

Turn these $.99 bat ornaments into a versatile Halloween garland in just minutes!

I feel like this is pretty self-explanatory but I’ll give you the official tutorial anyway! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Instructions:

STEP 1. Snip off ornament tags and twine from bat head.

STEP 2. Drill holes in bat wings.

STEP 3. String twine (roughly 5″ from each bat, including knot,) from the back of the wing and tie in a knot to secure.
