How to Make a Vampire Bat Pencil Topper.

1. Make a paper pattern by folding a piece of paper in half and drawing half a bat next to the fold.

Cut it out.

2. Open the bat pattern

and trace around it on the black craft foam.

I’ve found that pencil marks will show up enough on the black foam so you can see to cut the bat out.

3. Make 2 slits where the pencil will go through.

4. Cut or punch 2 tiny eyes from the red foam.

Or you can use 2 googly eyes or 2 red seed beads.

5. Glue the eyes on the front of the head.

Tips.

Be sure kids are supervised when using sharp objects.
