Step 1: Place the spooky tree branches into your urn.

Step 2: Secure the position of the branches by placing floral foam around the branches.

Step 3: Punch a small hole into each bat, make sure you punch a hole in the bottom of the bat that you would like to hang upside down!

Step 4: Cut small 2 inch lengths of floral wire and curve into an “s” shape and insert one end through the hole in each bat.

Step 5: hang the bats all over the tree like they are flying and hanging upside down.

Step 6: Cut 1/2 inch wide strips of the newspaper wrapping paper and place into the urn to cover the floral foam.

That is it!
