Bat Mobile How-To




  1. Step 1

    Download and print the bats from our cake template onto card stock, enlarging or reducing to create a variety of sizes if desired. Cut out bat shapes.

  2. Step 2

    Trace shapes onto black card stock. Cut out bats.

  3. Step 3

    Score each bat as indicated on the template: along midline of body and where each wing meets the body.

  4. Step 4

    Wrap a single-wire wreath form (or an inner embroidery hoop) in black seam binding.

  5. Step 5

    With a needle, make a small hole in the head of each bat, insert a length of black thread into each hole, and knot. (Alternatively, affix thread to bat with clear or black tape.)

  6. Step 6

    Hang bats at varying lengths from wreath form, and hang wreath form using a ribbon, monofilament, or thin cord.

    I am not able to download the bat template. I have no trouble with other templates on this site.
