Materials Needed:

  • 13" x 13" T-shirt display or box frame with glass front
  • craft punch featuring 1-1/2-inch bats, spiders or whatever Halloween motif you choose
  • decorative craft paper in various patterns and colors
  • 14" x 14" square of plain-colored fabric
  • heavy-duty tape
  • miniature adhesive circles

Wrap the Frame Insert

To start, wrap the plain-colored fabric over the frame's background insert, which should be about 12"x12". Secure with heavy tape.

Create Specimens

Using either a craft punch or Silhouette machine, cut out a uniform number of specimens from the craft paper. They should be the same size but vary in color, print and design.

Bend the Cut-Outs

Give dimension to your project by bending the wings of your bats upward.
