Pinecone Bats

Another fun Halloween craft for kids is making a bat out of pinecones and leaves. Again, we are using what nature has to offer.

What You’ll Need
Leaves with stems
Black spray paint
Googly eyes (optional)

What You’ll Do

  1. Grab a pinecone and two leaves of about the same size.
  2. Take one leaf and stick it into a crevice in the pinecone and wrap the stem around the pinecone while stuffing the stem under the pinecone parts.
  3. Repeat step three with another leaf but starting from the opposite side.
  4. Spray paint the entire thing and set aside to dry.
  5. Once dry, add on two googly eyes.
  6. Then, tie a ribbon to the top of it so that you may hang it from a tree.
