I used newspaper and A LOT of newspaper! I used an entire Arkansas Democrat Gazette Sunday paper, which for anyone who knows is a rather large paper, and I still could have used more to make the wreath more full, but by this point I was exhausted!
I used a large peanut butter jar lid to trace circles on the newspaper and cut them out. The circles really need to have ruffled edges so I just drew them around the circle and cut them out like it was all one thing.
For the wreath frame I used plumbing foam from Lowe’s. It’s only $1. Just wrap it around to make a circle and tape it together.
I found a picture of a bat on the internet, printed it out, and traced it onto black construction paper. The black construction paper is better than just printing out a bat on printer paper because it’s thicker. I used bats in several different sizes. When I got the bats cut out I folded their wings in to make them look like they were flying.
So after I got ALL of those circles cut out you take a pencil and stick it in the center to make the circle fold up and look like a flower. Then you hot glue it to the wreath frame. It takes a lot of time and a lot of work to glue all the little circles and make it look full and pretty. As I said earlier, I gave up.
Once all the newspaper is glued on just hot glue that bats on wherever you would like.
