Day 284 - Like A Bat Out Of Hell, This Project Is Simple.

Day 284 - Like A Bat Out Of Hell, This Project Is Simple.

Hey, creatures of the night. It's Sunday. Sunday means there is only time for a project that will be as quick as a bat out of hell. First let's talk about how bats are super cool and scary all at the same time. Their black, weirdly leathery, coasting like an old cadillac character can really send goosebumps down anyone's spine. When I was in the 4th grade, I was sitting at my desk learning my numbers, talking to my friend Kevin, when I heard a little squeak. As I turned around, I expected to see a see a sweet, little, soft brown mouse staring back at me. To my horror, what made the squeak was a big, hairy, black as night, bat. It was flopping around on the floor and staring directly into my soul with it's beady black eyes. I'll never forget how much I jumped out of my chair.

Let's re-create some of that gut wrenching fear and add pizzaz to any Halloween party or spookiness to any entryway. Let's make this simple at bat-o-ful mobile.

You will need:

Step 1: Print out the bat template on the black card stock. Cut out 13 bats.

Step 2: With a needle, place two holes on the back of each bat.

Step 3. Cut various lengths of fishing line and thread one strand through each bat. Tie with a knot. Fold the wings in and down on each bat.

Step 4. Tie each string with bat to the tree branch. Spooky simple right?

Well, I am headed to do some ghost hunting. Enjoy the bats in your belfry and see you tomorrow spooks.
