- Flatten round coffee filters and apply several colors of washable markers in a variety of patterns. Place the colored coffee filter on craft mat and spritz with water to watch the magic! Set aside to dry.
2. While the coffee filter dries, clip the clothespins on a scrap of cardboard and paint all sides with black craft paint and paintbrush. Set aside to dry.
3. Once clothespins are dry, attach wiggle eyes to each using the fine tip applicator. Then draw a mouth and fangs with a white gel pen on the clothespins. Set aside to dry.
4. Fold the dried coffee filter in fourths and cut a scalloped edge with scissors. Unfold filter to half and cut a 3” slit up from the scalloped edge.
5. Open the clothespins and insert wings. Cut ears from black cardstock, apply to the top of the clothespin with liquid glue. Your bats are done and ready to decorate!
You can clip the bats on a string or hang then from lamps and things with string.
