Supply List –

  1. Purple glitter paper
  2. Silver Glitter paper
  3. Gold glitter paper
  4. Warm Glue gun and glue sticks
  5. Orange glass beads – these come in bulk, and are sold as vase fillers – usually found in the floral section
  6. Black paper bag
  7. Little black paper dots – I used some from a bag of confetti. You can also use a hole punch to punch out black circles from black construction paper
  • I flipped the purple paper to the back and drew wings with a pencil, and then cut those out.
  • I used gold glitter paper for the nose – It’s just an oval that’s a little wider on the top
  • I used silver glitter paper for the two ears, and glued those to the backside of the front of the bag, on either side of the handle


  • Using the purple glitter paper – I cut out a circle a little larger than orange glass beads
  • I used orange glass beads for the eyes
  • I used black confetti dots for the center of the owl eye

  • To make the fangs and the eyebrows, I drew the shapes of fangs and eyebrows on the bags with glue, and sprinkled silver glitter over the glue
  • For the wings and bat ears, I cut black felt pieces to resemble bat wings, and black felt ears (basically a really tall and skinny triangle), then I sprayed – spray adhesive (you can also use hair spray) onto the felt, and sprinkled black glitter onto the felt pieces.
  • Let those dry before gluing them on with hot glue
  • Here’s a template for bat wings from DLTK
