BAT-O-LANTERNS!!! Aren't they spOOky?!?
One quick trip to Hobby Lobby (Does anyone else make weekly trips to the Hob? I seriously need help) to get a few materials. Small pumpkins courtesy of the local pumpkin patch. And a few staples from my craft closet. Bring on the bats!
Let your little punkins paint their hearts out......black acrylic paint is kind of scary since it's so permanent. I put several sheets of white paper down to protect to my kitchen table.
Now, I apologize for the lack of pictures on the next steps. I was knee deep in craft foam and duct tape and I forgot to take pictures.
Next, let the pumpkins dry. Then cut wings, ears, and eyes out of craft foam. I used a whole punch to make eyeballs from the white craft foam. I attached toothpicks with black duct tape to the wings and ears and stuck them in the pumpkins.
Now my dining room table has a colony of bats living on it.
Bring on Halloween!!!!
