If you're looking for a Halloween project that you can work on while you catch up on all of the season premieres- then this is it! It really is such a simple project. I just drew a template of a bat and ghost. (Well my soon to be sister in law helped me out with the ghost- thanks Judy!) I traced the patterens onto some white cardstock for the ghost, and black and grey cardstock for the bats. (Let me know if you'd like me to post the templates for the bat and the ghost.)
Once I had a few of each shape cut out, I taped them onto sticks. I glued googly eyes on the ghosts, but you could just as easily draw on eyes and mouth if you'd like. I covered the outside of the jar with a piece of patterened paper. Then I crumpled up a piece of paper and squished it in the jar so that the sticks would stay just how I arranged them.
Here's an up close shot of the casst. Grey bat, black bat, and white ghost.
There you have a Halloween bouquet of bats and ghosts.
