We saw this bat chandelier while flipping through the Pottery Barn Kids catalog and knew we could make out own for a fraction of the price. It’s not longer available on the site, so if you like it, keep scrolling to learn how to make your own!
Supplies: 2 wood embroidery hoops (one smaller than the other), black acrylic paint, a paint brush, black hemp or string, bat cut-outs or stickers, black glitter organza, scissors, and a hot glue gun.
1. Remove the outer part of each wooden hoop and set aside. You will only need the inner hoops.
2. Paint the inner hoops black with acrylic paint. Let dry completely.
3. Attach bats to lengths of string and tie at varying heights onto both hoops. We used bat stickers that we stuck together to sandwich the string between them, mixed with some papet cut-outs attached with hot glue.
4. Tie four long pieces of black string equidistant apart on the lower hoop then attach those four strings to the upper hoop. If there is enough string, tie all four pieces together in the center to hang the mobile. If not, attach more string to create a place to hang the mobile.
5. Measure the inside of the larger hoop and cut a piece of organza the same length. Cut the organza in half down the middle, making wavy cuts.
6. Using hot glue, attach one half of the organza strip to the inside of the larger hoop. Do the same with the other half on the smaller hoop and cut excess organza.
You can fill the mobile with lots of bats, or use other Halloween-inspired shapes! Hang this in an entry way or over a table for a spooky touch to your Halloween decor. Enjoy!
