OK ladies, like we need another excuse to go shoe shopping. But it certainly doesn’t hurt if we know we will be reusing our shopping bag afterwards, right!? I’ve been particularly fond of this DSW striped shoe bag for sometime and have been saving it for just the right project. I think I finally found it! So today, for my second Halloween installment, I’m sharing with you how to make these super easy, super cute bat holders out of a cardboard tube, a little paint and a paper bag (or any other fun, thick paper you have lying around). This project is a fun and easy project for your kids to do as well.
The real batty magic happens when you decide just want to do with these little bats. You could use them as finger puppets and put on a spooky show or just set them out as a Halloween decoration but I really like their utilitarian value. For example they make great napkin holders and would be darling as a last minute addition to a haunted feast!
Or my personal favorite, candy holders. Don’t you think these would make great favors at a Halloween party or serve as a fun way to package a treat for coworker, friend, etc. ?
In fact, they are so enticing they won’t stay around for long. Watch our for little hands trying to sneak away with the candy!
