Dollar Store DIY: Halloween Bat Wall Hanging
Here is what you will need to make this easy Halloween Craft
Plastic plates in purple
Bat die cuts (Sold in pack of 12 for $1)
Black branches (Sold in the rose bundles)
Hot glue, glue gun
Mod Podge (optional)
As you can see, these are all items you can find at your local Dollar store. For just a few dollars, you can make several of these bat wall hangings. Mod Podge in this project is optional. You can use it and find it at your local craft store. However, craft glue will work for this step as well.
1. Begin by applying some craft glue or Mod Podge to the top of the plate. Place the bat cut out over it and press down. Pour a second coat of Mod Podge or craft glue over the bat. Smooth it over the bat until there is a thin coat. This will seal it to the plate.
2. On the bottom left of the plate, use your hot glue to attach some of the black branches. Just apply the glue, press, and hold until dry.
3. Place another bat over the branches like it is perching on it. To do this step, just use a little craft or hot glue and adhere it to the branch.
4. Cut a length of ribbon for hanging the plate. Simply cut the ribbon, glue it to the back of the plate, and your piece is now ready to be displayed.
To display your bat wall hanging, all you need to do is place the ribbon over a hook, wreath hook, or nail. You can even hang it from a door knob if you wish.
Give this beautiful bat wall hanging a try. It is the perfect easy Halloween craft for anyone who wants their home to look hauntingly good, but on a budget!
