Fall is officially upon us, which means it's time to start posting my Halloween projects. First up is the basic felt bat. This is a quick project that makes fun hanging ornaments. It's easy to embellish with embroidered wing details, vampire teeth, or anything else a bat might need. The template comes in two sizes, and is very quick to put together.

If you're interested in making a bat pin to wear, allow me to recommend this Felt Bat Halloween Brooch (with free template) from Do Small Things With Love. It has a big face with fun mismatched button eyes. I hope I'll have time to make one of these to wear on Halloween.
Looking for a low commitment Halloween costume this year? How about a bat mask? Susan of Living with Punks shares a very cool (non Batman) bat mask pattern that would work for anyone at any age.
Other fun ways to decorate with bats include making a felt bat garland, a paper bat garland, some bat-o-lanterns from painted pumpkins, or a creepy bat mobile using a branch.
