Look what we'll be making next Monday at Crafting a Haunted House:

From Activity Village Bat Templates, I downloaded a bunch of bat templates.

I just so happened to have a giant 4" roll of tape in the back room. We got it for taping down the computer chords, but look how much is left over! Perfect for batmaking!  It's 4", but you could do this with regular 3" and then you could use your weird duck tapes to make weird looking bats.  

I bent the wings to define his little mousie body.  I might hang him up or tape him to a window, but I really like the way he turned out; the tape is just the right texture. He's truly like 'a leather wing bat."

Look what else we're making:

We found our instructions at HGTV: DIY Haunted House!

Here's what else we made:
Marble rolled spider webs were for the little kids, but it turned out the big ones liked doing them too.

I might not do the mummy votives next year.  The kids seemed to find them a bit troublesome. 
Update:  The kids loved them once they had them home with votives in them.
1.  Pick out a jar. Tear off a length of toilet paper and slowly tear it in two.  Rough edges look best.
2. Put a few dots of glue on your jar and slowly wind tissue around it.  You don't need a lot of glue.
3. Tie some string around the jar, crisscrossing.  Maybe make some knots.
4.  Google eyes!
5.  Add a candle and light it up!

Believe it or not, not everyone in the world has made a lollipop ghost!  These were a big hit!
