By making these cute DIY bats out of Duck Tape, they are weatherproof and perfect for outdoor Halloween decorating.
- They can be attached to skewers then stuck into the grass, planters or window boxes.
- They can be strung together on twine to make a cute garland.
- They can be attached to a window or door to make a flying flock of bats.
There are so many possibilities! And unlike paper bats, these ones will withstand any rain or snow that might happen. Yay!
To make your own Duck Tape bats, you will need:
- Duck Tape (Black, Orange, Glow-in-the-Dark)
- Small Googly Eyes
- Hot Glue Gun + Glue Sticks

Step 4: Use a pair of scissors to cut a scalloped bat wing shape on each side of the knot.
