If you’re looking for an easy and cute Halloween craft, try making this bat wreath.

Making this Halloween bat wreath is so easy you can really get your kids involved. They can even try to make them themselves!

Have you noticed that the dollar tree carries more and more craft supplies and wreath-making items? Not sure about the store in your area, but that wasn’t always the case with mine. Many of my crown-type supplies should typically be purchased from Walmart, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, or other equivalent location.

But since they’ve upped their inventory, making cute and inexpensive wreaths is super easy. These wreaths pair perfectly with a set of mini black cat pumpkins or another style of Halloween wreath.

BECAUSE I LOVE THIS CRAFT

When it comes to shopping at Dollar Tree, honestly, you never know what you’ll find. The bat ribbon used for this craft was just a great find, but you may also find some with broomsticks, pumpkins, or another design you like.

It’s so nice to see what colors and patterns they will have in stock every time I go. And something else I’ve learned … when you see something that catches your attention, take it! There have been many times when I’ve put off collecting a nice tape only to go back and realize they were all gone.

This craft is also great because it can be easily customized for any holiday season. When Christmas comes, the Halloween bat wreath can become a candy cane or a Santa Claus wreath, depending on which ribbon you use.

SUPPLIES REQUIRED

  • Foam garland (the green one)
  • Bat ribbon
    Supplies for making a bat wreath.
  • Bats (set of 4)
  • Glue gun
  • Glue stick (s)

TUTORIAL: How to Make a Halloween Bat Wreath in a Dollar Store

Here is a brief detailed guide for this craft:

  1. Pick a starting point on your green foam wreath and apply a two-inch line of hot glue.
  2. Starting at the end of the ribbon, apply it to the hot glue and start wrapping the ribbon around the garland. Make sure you overlap each wrap slightly so that none of the garlands show through.
  3. Once you have reached the beginning of where you started wrapping, cut the ribbon.
  4. Apply another two-inch line of hot glue and press the cut end of the ribbon onto it.
  5. Before applying the bats, you will need to remove the clips on the back. How you put them on the wreath is totally up to you. My advice is to place two at the bottom (to cover any imperfections) and two at the top, adjacent to each other.

If you’d like to add some variation to your wreath, consider adding the entangled spider web with the fake spider rings. You can also add other things to your wreath like a black bow.
