Craft Foam Bats and Spiders

Halloween Craft Idea - Bats and Spiders

Family Fun Craft Idea for Halloween
Craft Foam Bats and Spiders

Conjure up miniature bats and spiders to live in the mansion and hang life-size versions in your doorway to greet visitors face-to-face.
·        Scissors
·        Black foam sheets
·        Glue
·        Googly eyes
·        Fishing line
·        Masking and Scotch tape
·        Thumb Tack (optional)

1.     Cut bat and spider shapes from the black foam sheets (design your own or to print out our pattern shown below-resize with a copier). Foam Sheets available on the Yarn Cat Crafts Page for Kids Crafts – Foam.
2.     Glue on googly eyes (also available in Yarn Cat Crafts page for Kid’s Crafts ) and suspend the creatures with fishing line or monofilament thread and tape. We suggest Scotch tape on the bodies and masking tape on the hanging surface. Another option is to poke 2 holes in the body with a thumb tack, thread the line through, knot it in back, and use masking tape on the hanging surface only.

  1. It's not quite for the kids, but if you're wanting to make some very detailed foam cutouts for decorations, craft foam like used on the bats can be easily and accurately cut with sharp silver craft knives that can give you some real detail.
