Perfect for a wall display or as the star of your bobbing-for-apples bucket, a bat-theme paper medallion sets a spooky scene.
Spooky silohettes are illuminated by flickering candlight in these haunting lanterns. Embellish glass lanterns with shadowy silhouette patterns, available below. To make, create silhouettes like flying bats or a moon and stars. Trace patterns onto the back side of vinyl or self-adhesive shelf liner. Cut out the shapes and adhere to the lanterns.
This grinning Dracula isn't out for blood -- he's standing ready to dispense candy. Take as many pieces as you want, he's not counting.
Create a surprising scene, like this batty one, on a standard orange pumpkin for an unexpected jack-o'-lantern.
Haunt your house -- or at least your windows -- with paper bats flying every which way. Cut several sizes of bats from black poster board or cardstock. Tape fishing line at different spots on the backs and heads; hang the lines from a curtain rod or cup hooks.
Serve ghoulish drinks with our easy-to-make black bat picks. Simply download our free pattern, trace onto black cardstock, cut out, and use a dab of tacky glue to adhere to the tops of a clear cocktail stir sticks.
Wrap pint-size boxes full of Halloween candy with color copies of old letters and journals; they'll look as if they were just pulled from the depths of a dusty attic. Add black bats for a spooky touch. Just download the bat wing pattern, trace onto black paper, cut out, and glue to the sides of the boxes.
Add a warm glow to your party by attaching black paper bats (made from our free pattern) to an inexpensive clear glass candleholder with double-stick tape. Then cover the entire unit with orange glassine. The bats appear to be flying right at you!
This hanging bat adds an extra creep factor to a plain pumpkin. Intruders will wonder if he's asleep or waiting to fly.
Tell your friends "Happy Halloween" with a sparkly vampire bat card. This project also makes a spooky invitation. Type (or write) your party details on light-color cardstock and adhere to the bat body.
Perch these poster-board bats on the backs of chairs. If you're hosting a party, use them as place cards and write each guest's name on a bat with a silver metallic marker. If you have extra bats, attach them to a stair railing.
