Last Halloween, I purchased some glittery foam bats silhouettes from Michaels. I punched holes in them and turned them into garland. This year for Halloween, I wanted to jazz the bats up a bit with glow-in-the-dark neon green paint (leftover from my son Kai’s glow-in-the-dark bowling birthday party). Here is how I did it:

Supplies:

  • black foam bats (if you can’t find them at the store, just use cut bat shapes out of craft foam or even card stock/construction paper)
  • paint brush
  • glow-in-the-dark paint (or neon paint)
  • paint brush
  • black yarn

Step 1: Use your brush to paint the edges of the bat neon green. I had to do three coats so it didn’t look splotchy. This isn’t normal acrylic paint. If it was, I think you would need less coats.

Step 2: Once dry, thread the bats with black yarn.

Step 3. Hang your Halloween bat garland decoration in a cool spot in your home. (I always hang our holiday garland in our dining room above our dinner table.)
