With Halloween creeping a little closer this is the perfect time to make Bat Halloween stencils. Using this Halloween bat stencil you can transform your home into a spooky Halloween bat cave.
Making bat Halloween stencils is an easy printable craft for children and grown ups who like make Halloween decorations to celebrate Halloween. To transform your home into a spooky bat cave this Halloween you’ll need a few craft supplies and some black material to drape from your walls and ceiling.
To make the Halloween bats for the bat cave you simply need to download this black and white bat stencil. To make smaller sized bat Halloween stencils just reduce the size before you reprint the stencil.
Print on standard size printer paper and cut around the Bat Halloween stencils leaving about a three centimeter allowance. Cutting away this waste paper will allow you to glue more bats onto thick craft card or cardboard.
By going through this process it will make your stencils rigid enough to cut around the outside edges of the bats and turn the bats into traceable bat Halloween stencils.
Once you’ve cut out the bats you’ll need enough black craft card for this paper project, and a white color pencil. Trace around the Halloween bat stencil or stencils until until you have enough bats to fill your Halloween bat cave.
This where the fun begins you need to cut out the bats you’ve just traced. OK, it will take some time but it’s well worth it. Make sure there is adult present when children are using scissors. Once you’ve cut them all out we are going to transform these Bat Halloween stencils into a spooky bats with glowing eyes.
To make the bats eyes glow in the dark you can use glow in the dark puffy paint to make two dots for their eyes. When the room is pitch black you’ll see a room full of scary Halloween bat eyes looking straight at you. While their eyes are drying you can get mum and dad to help you fix the black material to the walls and the ceiling of the room.
Separate out enough Halloween bats for the ceiling of the bat cave. Start by making two small holes in the middle of their back. Thread black cotton in one hole and out the other, then tie a knot at the top of the string. To attach them to the cave ceiling ask mum or dad if they can hand sew them just enough so they are fixed to the material.
To cover the bat cave walls in Halloween bats just use some double sided tape on the back of each Halloween bat stencil, then stick them all over the cave walls.
Now that your bat cave is finished, just wait for it to get dark and see your spooky Halloween bats come to life with their glowing eyes in your very own Halloween bat cave.
Remember kids this bat Halloween stencil can also be used as a worksheet for school a Halloween coloring page or as a clip art shape.
