DIY Coffee Filter Bats 🦇

September 12, 2022

I remember a short time when we all feared bats and now two two years later we can seem to get enough of them lol. So here’s a fun and ever so easy coffee filter bat for your diy home decor!

What you need:

  • Coffee filters (I suggest white unless you plan on painting them black)
  • Markers or water color paint
  • Hot glue
  • Ribbon

How to make it:

  • I let my littles paint the coffee filters. They did both water color paint and markers but markers were hands down their favorite. I had some water droppers on hand so it turned into a fun science experience.
  • Let the coffee filters dry over night
  • Fold them in half top to bottom and glue together. Glue sticks worked best- another project for the kids!
  • Fold them side to side having the open sides facing out.
  • Cut your bat wings
  • Unfold the side to side wings
  • Accordion fold the center of the bat and hot glue the back folds
  • Put a hot glue dot on the back of the glued wings and wrap ribbon around
  • Thanks it! You can use double sided tape to stick to the wall

If you love this diy fall craft you will love what the gals are up to.

    I love the tie dye vibe! I’m showing them to Robbie tomorrow, and I’m sure he’ll be game to making them.
