Countdown to Halloween #10

  1. What you'll need

    Black acrylic paint
    Ornamental (miniature) pumpkins
    Black and white craft foam
    Wings,ears & eyes template
    Hole punch
    Glue dots
    Black duct tape
    Wooden skewers

    How to make it

    Cover your work surface with a drop cloth or newspaper, then paint the pumpkins. Allow them to dry completely.

    For each bat, choose a style of wings and eyes from the template.Then, trace and cut out two identical eyes from the white craft foam and use the hole punch to make pupils. Adhere the eyes to the pumpkin with glue dots.

    Cut a matching pairs of ears and wings from the black craft foam (our wings are about 6 inches long). Attach the ears by taping a toothpick to the back of each one, leaving about 1 1/2 inches of the toothpick exposed, then inserting it into the top of the pumpkin.

    Finally, tape a skewer to the back of each wing, leaving a 2-inch point exposed, and push it in place.
