Plastic Cup Hanging Bat

Plastic Cup Hanging Bat

This quick Halloween project shows you how to make an inexpensive plastic cup hanging bat that can be used to decorate tables, doorways or hang them in the tree's for a great night time effect.

What you need

Black Plastic or Paper party cups
felt or foam pieces for face
Cord for hanging
Craft Glue


Start by cutting out your bat’s face. Adults can prepare this step for smaller children and then have the children simply glue the pieces on.

Use the image as a guide to face shapes.

Alternatively you can use simple marker pens, or for a spooky night time effect use glow in the dark paints to highlight the eyes.
