Package of black bat cut outs
Hot glue and glue gun
All of the above items can be found at your local Dollar Tree store. Just look in the Halloween décor aisles and craft supply aisle.
1. You will want to begin by measuring out about 3 feet of ribbon. Cut. You may alter this length based on the size banner you want to make.
2. Lay out the bat cut outs. You will notice there are three different varieties. You now need to decide what pattern you want to place your bats in.
3. Once you decide, it is time to start gluing. Place a dab of glue on the back of each bat and press it firmly to the ribbon. You can angle the bats if you wish for a flying look!
4. When your bats are dry, you can now hang the banner any place you wish. These banners look cute draped on mantels, in doorways, or even just on the wall. A little piece of tape or a push pin is all you need to secure it.
This dollar store DIY project is so easy, even the kiddos can get in on the action and help you. It is a simple and inexpensive craft that is perfect for giving your home a little extra spookiness for less. So head to your Dollar Tree store and grab the supplies you need to get crafting!
Total Cost = $2
(assuming you already have a glue gun w/ glue sticks)
