With me, crafting needs to hit three main points: quick, cute and fairly inexpensive. I love to craft and create each season, every year (like a good DIY/craft blogger!) so I don’t want to break the bank on supplies. Every holiday, you can find me scouring the aisles of my local craft stores looking for inexpensive elements that can pack a big punch. And this craft is the perfect example! Grab a few supplies (mine cost less than $5!) and let’s whip up a …3 minute Halloween bat wreath!!
Using one embroidery hoop, a package of 12 foam bats – 1/2 are matte and 1/2 are sparkly – a ribbon or fabric scrap (for hanging) and your hot glue gun … this wreath takes shape quickly and packs a cute little sparkly Halloween punch!
Overlap the bats around the embroidery hoop (hiding the hoop) and secure them with hot glue. It was a little tricky to fit them all on and space them evenly, so arrange them before you glue the bats to the hoop. Once the hot glue is dry, loop your ribbon or fabric through the metal screw at the top of the embroidery hoop or just around the hoop itself and hang!
I love bats during Halloween! Fun fact: we actually have bats outside our house (that we thought were birds when we first moved in, ha!) They are always out right before the sun comes up and it is SO cool to watch them reel and wheel and dive after mosquitoes/bugs! Luckily, they don’t fly too close!
