Bats and Spiders - Step 1Cut bat and spider shapes from the black foam sheets (design your own or click here to print out our pattern).

Glue on googly eyes and suspend the creatures with fishing line and tape. We suggest Scotch tape on the bodies and masking tape on the hanging surface. Another option is to poke 2 holes in the body with a tack, thread the line through, knot it in back, and use masking tape on the hanging surface only.
