oversize bats garland

Make this intricate oversized bat garland with your Cricut® machine and cardstock for a spooky addition to your mantel this Halloween.

Step 1

First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.
TIP: If you want to make any changes to the design, click ‘Customize’ at the bottom of the screen and it will move the design into your canvas. Use the edit tools in the tool bar and then click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner of your screen.

Step 2

Click ‘Continue’ in the lower right corner of your screen.
TIP: If you want multiple cuts of your design, before you click ‘Continue’, change the quantity in the upper left corner of your screen.

Step 3

Place a piece of cardstock onto your cutting mat, select your material and load your mat into your Cricut® machine.

Step 4

When your machine is done cutting from your cardstock, unload your mat and gently remove the cardstock. Remove any pieces left around or within the cutout and discard. Add your next mat layer, as indicated in the review panel on the left of your screen, re-load the mat and click the blinking icon. Repeat for each layer.

Step 5

Adhere the black bats to the grey bats.

Step 6

Hot glue short strips of cording to the back to connect the bats.

Step 7

Hot glue longer strips of the cording to the each end of your bat garland for hangers.
