Fun Animal Crafts for Days at Home

Bat garlands are the perfect decoration for Halloween. They are easy to make, and the most beautiful ones are, of course, made from leftover wallpaper remnants. Here is a simple guide on how to do a charming garland by yourself.

You will need

  • Wallpaper samples or leftovers cut into A4 size
  • A pair of scissors
  • A stapler
  • A string


Step 1: First, fold the paper in half, and then again in the same direction.

Step 2: Cut a concave round in the top and bottom of the paper as in the picture.

Step 3: Unfold the sheet and fold the entire paper in an accordion fold.

Step 4: Cut a bat’s head and wingtips in the top bay. Then staple the folded sheet in half.

Step 5: Carefully fold out the folds at the bottom of the bat and staple the sides together.

Step 6: Finally, staple the string to the top of the bat and then make another bunch.

The result is a quirky bat garland that the whole family will appreciate.
