Easy 5-minute craft! Make your own easy DIY Halloween bat decor…
Hi friends, I’m sharing a free design with you today!
Today’s post incorporates crafting and home decor – what could be better than that?
I’ll tell you…
This craft takes only 5 minutes, from start to finish.
So no matter how busy your schedule is – you can crank this one out in now time, especially because I’m sharing the free Design Space link for it.
For the Spooky Season, I’m making some paper bats.
Looking back at it – I’m not too proud of how my bats turned out, ha!
But that post was written in 2019, and I’ve learned a lot since then.
These bats will knock your socks off – check them out…

What You’ll Need To Make Your DIY Paper Bats
- black cardstock
- Cricut machine (I’m using my Maker 3, but this project is compatible with the Explore Air 2, Explore Air 3, Maker, Maker 3, etc.)
- LightGrip Cricut cutting mat
- tacky putty (here is the exact kind I use for walls – safe for paint, easily removable!)
And that’s it!
Cutting Out Your Halloween Bat Decor
Within the Canvas, simply click on the green Make It button towards the top right.
If using the new Maker 3 or Explore Air 3, your design will be cut in a matter of seconds.
After cutting paper or thin materials (except for fabric), you’ll need to place the mat material-side down on a flat surface.
Roll the mat up and away from the table surface so that the mat curls and your material doesn’t.
if you try to peel the material away from the mat, it will curl your paper.
Use small balls of tacky putty to adhere your finished paper bats to the surface you want.
This can be your fireplace, coffee bar, front door or porch, or even your range hood!
I love the way mine turned out – and I was done in a matter of minutes!
