I’ve Gone “BATTY”!! { Bat Napkin Ring Tutorial }

Welcome back to another “Wicked Wednesday” at Uncommon!!
Can you believe it is October and Halloween is right around the corner? Wow, fall is flying by!!
Speaking of “flying”, I’ve been doing a little Halloween crafting and decorating around my house and today I would LOVE to show you a very simple and quick tutorial for…

Bat Napkin Rings !

Bat Napkin Rings
These are super easy and absolutely adorable!!
Here are the supplies you will need…
wooden bat cut-outs (mine came from Michaels)
heavy gauge floral wire (yep..Michaels)
smalls grapevine wreaths ( I got a set of 6 in the Christmas craft section in Hobby Lobby)
black feather boas (these were in the Halloween section of Hobby Lobby)
black spray paint
black chalkboard paint
That’s it!! Oh, except for your trusty glue gun!!
Now, let’s get started!!
Bat Napkin Rings
Spray paint your grapevine wreaths and floral wire black. Next, spray paint your bat cutouts with the black chalkboard paint. Twist the floral wire around a pencil to form spirals!

Attach the spiraled floral wire to the wreaths, by weaving it through and pinching it closed. Make sure the wire is where you want the “top” of the napkin ring to be! Flatten out the top portion of the wire where you are about to attach the bat!

Ok..now take that feather boa off from around your neck, and cut a length long enough to be glued around the grapevine wreath. Be prepared to sneeze!! I used two boas for this project! Simply glue it around the wreath with your glue gun!

Finally, attach your bat to the floral wire with your trusty glue gun!! I know I use A LOT of glue…no judging !!
