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: 

Intermediate

Approximate Crafting Time: 

0:45

Supplies and Tools:

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

Directions

Print
  • 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!

    Most notably Catalunya giant Origin has successfully recruited talented striker Suarez m88 for 70 million pounds (88 million euros) from Liverpool. Along with Messi, Neymar, the presence of Uruguayan striker fever is caused NHM 3 attack on the M88 is perhaps the most feared teams in the history of the Camp Nou.
