Sometimes the hardest thing about DIY Halloween projects or crafts is making a perfectly symmetrical shape… especially if you’re a perfectionist like me! So I created some different sizes and shapes of bat cut outs to help you this October!

By the way, this is one of my favorite ways to make a DIY garland, because it’s so easy to do… Just clip the different banner pieces up to the twine, like I did with this DIY Fall Garland (that took me less than 10 minutes to make!).

Cut out a handful of the smaller printable bat templates, and grab some small branches or twigs from your backyard. Then, attach the bat template cut outs to the branches using fishing line or even glue.

Tips for Printing the Bat Templates
Here are some tips for making the bat template printable work for you:
- Adjust the scale in the print window for even more sizes. Need smaller bats? Adjust the scale percentage down so that the bat patterns print smaller.
- Mix and match different sizes and styles of the bats for your DIY Halloween decor.
- Print the templates on card stock for sturdier patterns. I find it easier to trace a template that has been printed on a thicker paper, because it’s less likely to wrinkle or move against the pressure of the pencil.
- For colored bat decor, you can print directly on colored card stock and then just cut out the bats. For instance, print the bats on neon green, bright orange, or purple card stock and make a festive Halloween banner for your fireplace.
