Paper Bat Halloween Tree

I have been loving all the adorable Halloween trees in the blog world! So today, I decided to create my own, extremely simple, version! This paper bat Halloween tree is both quick and super easy…

Paper Bat Halloween Tree

Remember those dollar store owl die cuts I used to make my Halloween Owl Plate? Well…they also hat a collection of bats! Here is what you will need to make this simple and quick…

Paper Bat Halloween Tree


1 package of paper bat die cuts { from Dollar Tree }

1 roll newspaper print wrapping paper { from Target dollar spot }

1 black urn { from Hobby Lobby }

dark brown or black spooky branches { from Hobby Lobby }

floral foam

floral wire

extra small hole punch

Paper Bat Halloween Tree

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!

I love how this Paper Bat Halloween Tree turned out! It is the perfect centerpiece for my table and a great jumping off point for the rest of my table decor to come! It is amazing to me what you can find at the dollar store!
