Duck Tape® Halloween Bat

Ducktivity provided by Duck® Brand

Need a Halloween decoration that really sticks out? Make a craft that really takes flight with this Duck Tape® Halloween Bat.    

Skill Level: 


Approximate Crafting Time: 


Supplies and Tools:

  • Duck Tape®
  • Floral wire
  • Ruler
  • String or elastic cord
  • Craft knife
  • Crafting board


  • Step 1

    Make a strip of Duck Tape® that is 8 in. long and 2 strips wide, leaving one side sticky. 

  • Step 2

    Draw or trace the shape of one wing on your strip. Cut it out with a crafting knife. 

  • Step 3

    Repeat steps 1-2 so that you have two identical wings.  It’s okay if the wings are facing same direction.

  • Step 4

    On the sticky side of your wings, place your floral wire around the outer edge of each wing. This will allow the wings to bend. 



  • Step 5

    Lay two strips of Duck Tape® sticky side down over each wing so the wire is sandwiched between the strips of tape. Trim off the edges. 

  • Step 6

    To create the body of the bat, roll a piece of Duck Tape® into a ball and continue to wrap strips of Duck Tape® around it until you reach your desired shape and size.

  • Step 7

    Attach the wings to the back of the body with small pieces of Duck Tape®.

  • Step 8

    Attach string or elastic cord to the top of the bat with a piece of Duck Tape®.

  • Step 9

    Add feet, ears, and eyes to complete your hanging bat!
