2 Halloween Crafts – Toilet Roll Bats and Glass Lanterns

Maggy Woodley of Red Ted Art demonstrates 2 Halloween crafts in conjunction with Party Delights – a toilet paper bat and a glass jar jack o’lantern.

These are both really quick and fun crafts that you can do with the kids.  I love the little bats, they are so cute!  Maggy has a really great way of making with wings, there’s no drawing or tracing required 🙂

  • Toilet rolls
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Googly eyes
  • Glass jar
  • Tissue paper
