Okay... so yesterday I tantalized you with hints of a tutorial involving knitting and peg dolls. This is not *that* tutorial, however, I think you might like this one as well. Halloween is less than two weeks away. Are you ready to go a little batty?
Peg dolls (any size, your choice)
Black paint (I usually use watercolors, but for this project I used acrylics)
Red paint (for the mouths)
PVA or other white craft glue
Thin wire (optional)
STEP 1: Paint your peg dolls, leaving room to add faces.
STEP 2: Add faces.
STEP 3: Cut ears and wings from black felt.
STEP 4: (optional) If you would like your bats to be able to hang upside down, cut approx. 4 inches (10 cm) thin wire (I used floral wire, colored black with a Sharpie). Fold the wire in a "U" shape and glue the bend of the "U" beneath the wings as depicted above.
STEP 5: Glue the wings to the backs & the ears to the backs of the heads of your dolls.
Q: What did one bat say to another?
A: Let's hang around together!
Happy (almost) Halloween...
