Popsicle Stick Halloween Bat Craft
To make your popsicle stick bat, you’ll need:
- Free Sketched Bat Template
- Popsicle Sticks
- Black Acrylic Paint
- Paper Scraps: Yellow, Black, Pink, white
How To Make Popsicle Stick Bats
1 – To make the bat’s body, lay four popsicle sticks side by side and glue them together. Reinforce by glueing two popsicle stick halves crossways onto the back.
2 – Paint the bat’s body with black acrylic paint. We love acrylic because you only need one coat.
3 – To make all the features for your bat either print the sketched template or draw your own. You need bats wings, eyes, fangs and a mouth.
4 – Trace the template shapes onto coloured paper. We used black for the wings and inner eyes, yellow for the outer eyes, pink for the mouth and white for the fangs.
5 – Cut out all the bat features.
6 – Finally all you need to do is simply glue them to the bat’s body!
Your popsicle stick bat is now ready to hang from the ceiling or stick to the wall! Happy Halloween!
