Halloween time is finally here and we are ready to decorate and celebrate!

Making crafts is a fun easy way to create activities for kids and a personal way to add decorations to your home. Our son loves seeing his art work or something he made at school or at home displayed in our house. It is incredibly easy to create a home that reflects our personalities as adults so it is important to us to be able to share the space with the kids and something that they contributed.

We’ve made a simple template for you to make your own bats that are large or small.

Simply print out the template and cut them out.

Fold a black piece of paper in half and place the template on the fold.

Trace and then cut out the bat.

Tape your bats to the wall or make a garland out of them.

It is really that simple! Be sure to share your creations and tag @diydougherty on Instagram.
