Happy Monday, friends! It is getting mighty chilly on the east coast, which makes all of these Halloween (and Christmas?!) decorations feel a lot more appropriate. Sure, we’d love a few more Summery days, but this Autumn air is all too welcome.

DIY No-Sew Felt Bat Garland | Vicky Barone

Today we’re sharing a bat garland that requires absolutely NO sewing! Grab your felt, scissor, and hot glue, and follow us…

DIY No-Sew Felt Bat Garland | Vicky Barone

Supplies: black felt, fabric scissors, chalk or a white marker, string, and hot glue.

Directions:
1. Hand draw or print out a bat shape onto a piece of paper. When you like the size and shape, trace it onto a small piece of card stock or thin cardboard and cut it out. This will be your template!
2. Trace around the template onto a piece of black felt using chalk or a white marker.
3. Cut the bat shapes out of the black felt.
4. Cut out a length of string for your garland. We used thin gold thread.
5. Heat up your hot glue gun and make two or three glue dots onto the back of a bat shape. We made three dots of glue – one on each wing and one in the center so the string made a V-shape when glued down (this way the string wouldn’t show between the wings when hung).
6. Quickly press the string to the glue dots.
