How to Make a Clothespin Bat Magnet Craft:

Step 1

To start, paint your wooden clothespin black using the acrylic paint and paint brush then set aside to dry.

Step 2

While that is drying, you can cut out your bat details by folding a piece of black foam paper in half.

Step 3

Once folded, use the scissors to cut out a bad shade for the wings (you want this to be all one piece). Folding it ensures both halves are the exact same when opened.

Step 4

Now, cut out a bat head. You want to make sure this is proportional to the size of your wooden clothespin so you can sketch lightly with a pencil if you want to ensure it fits.

Step 5

Once your wooden clothespin is dry, you can attach the pieces using hot glue.

Step 6

Finish off the bat by attaching a magnet to the backside and the small googly eyes onto the face of the bat.

You now have a bat that is able to hold and display all your Halloween art!
