Cute Clothespin Bat Magnets

5 Materials
1 Hour

I love clothespin crafts! They are so easy and I love finding new way to decorate and craft with them. Halloween is right around the corner, but we are still over here crafting like crazy in my house. These cute clothespin bat magnets are so easy to make and these little friends are the perfect addition to your home for Halloween. Plus, these make great gifts for friends and family.

This would also be a great Halloween classroom craft or gift to hand out to classmates.

Start by painting your clothespins black with regular craft paint.

Cut bat wings out of a piece of felt.

When the clothespin is dried completely, glue the wings and eyes on your bat.

Glue magnets to the back of your bat.

These bats are perfect for holding up all your special Halloween décor items! If you wanted to glue a thumbtack to the back, you could do that instead and use on a cork board. I have Halloween printables you can grab here:

You could hand these little bats out on Halloween as an alternative to candy or wrap the wings around a piece of candy and tie with a bow... If you love clothespin crafts, I have more here:
