How to make


Spray the wreath black; do this by building up light layers of black spray and letting them dry in between. Use a mask and a pair of gloves when you do this. It is better to spray outside if you can. You need plenty of ventilation.


Using all-purpose glue, stick on the black feathers as in the picture.


Spray the bat black. Build up layers as you did with the wreath and make sure that you take the necessary safety precautions. Once dry, cover the body part with Mod Podge and shake black glitter over the glue.


Lay the spider tulle out, folding it back on itself as shown. The distance between the widest two folds is around 30cm. Tie 1.5 metres of the spider tulle around the middle of the folded fabric to make a bow. Cut 1.5 metre lengths of the organza ribbons and tie them around the middle of the bow as well.


Cover the ‘knot’ in the centre of the bow with Mod Podge and glitter.


Use the all-purpose glue to stick the bat at an angle onto the back of the wreath so that his face shows through.


Use the gold pen or outliner to write a message of your choice on black paper. (write it using white pencil first if you are not confident). Cut around the lettering and then mount the black card onto kraft card and glue to the wreath. Stick diamante eyes to the bat.


Tie a length of the satin ribbon around the top of the wreath. Trim the hanging bits to different lengths and pull the bow out to make it less flat.
