DIY Halloween Crafts by Ali PART 1 {Spooky Bat Mobile}

I have shared many of Ali's awesome DIY's in the past, and now I'm sharing a special Halloween Edition treat for you! She is super creative, and Halloween happens to be her favorite time to decorate!! Recently, they purchase a beautiful new home, and I am LOVING this years DIY decor!!! 

 Bat mobile

This Halloween craft allows you to get a lot of bang for your buck because it is practically free!!  And nothing is better than that!

Large branch
Fishing line or thread
Black card stock
Sharpie or pencil

Instructions:  Make (or find online and print) bat templates of three sizes. Use Only half of the bat. Fold the card stock in half. Trace 5-10 bats of each size onto black car stock with the template edge along the folded side of the paper.  Cut the 1/2 bat out and unfold. Fold the bat's wings down so it looks like it's flying. Poke a small hole in the middle of the bat using a pin. Thread the fishing line through the hole and knot the end. Tie the other end to the branch at varying lengths. Hang the branch wherever you need a little spooky drama :)
