Make a Bat Cone Treat Holder for Halloween

This bat holds sweet surprises. Make these as treat bags for Halloween guests or decorations for a bat-themed party.

What You Need:

  • Bat pattern
  • Black card stock or construction paper
  • Score
  • Crafts knife
  • Glue
  • Gems
  • White dimensional paint
  • Black grosgrain ribbon
  • Hanger


Cut and Fold

Cut the bat pattern from black card stock or construction paper; keep in mind that if you're planning to carry candy in the treat cone, you'll want to use a heavier paper to avoid ripping. When the pattern is cut, score the dashed line with a crafts knife to make folding easier. To fold the bat into the cone shape, bring the left wing under the right wing and to the right side of the bat cone. Secure with double-sided tape or hot glue.


Add Embellishments

To turn the black cone into a spooky bat, use a gold, silver or white paint pen to add details to the bat's face and wings. Then, use a hole punch to add a hole at each of the two Xs as noted on the pattern. Cut a length of ribbon or twine (we used a 10-inch length of twine) and thread each end through one of the punched holes on either side of the cone. Then, knot the twine to secure the twine, and your bat is ready to collect candy! 


  1. The pattern for this Bat-cone is non-existent. The link goes to a blank page no matter how long I scroll to find it. Disappointing at best.

  2. The download seems to be working. Are you logged into your account when you try to download?
