Flying bat napkins

EEK! It's "Wicked Craft Week" here on the bloggity-blog.
That's right. I recently held some of my favorite crafty peeps hostage in hopes that they would share some of their wicked creativeness with us. They agreed and because of their spooktacular talents we have one week full of some frightfully delightful Halloween inspiration!
And here for the opening act is the crafting genius duo, sister-in-laws Bonnie & Trish.
Trust me, there is never a dull moment with these gals.
Their blog is FULL of fun and adorable projects.

Take it away ladies!

Hi Delightfully Noted Readers! We are Bonnie and Trish from the craft blog, Uncommon Designs and we are just thrilled to be a part of Wicked Craft Week! October is just flying by and Halloween will be here before we know it!

Speaking of "flying", today we would LOVE to show you a very simple and quick tutorial for "FlyingBat" napkin rings...

These are super easy and absolutely adorable!

 Here are the supplies you will need...

wooden bat cut-outs (mine came from Michaels)

heavy gauge floral wire (yep..Michaels)

smalls grapevine wreaths ( I got a set of 6 in the Christmas craft section in Hobby Lobby)

black feather boas (these were in the Halloween section of Hobby Lobby)

black spray paint

black chalkboard paint

That's it!! Oh, except for your trusty glue gun!!

Now, let's get started!!

Bat napkin ring supplies

Spray paint your grapevine wreaths and floral wire black. Next, spray paint your bat cutouts with the black chalkboard paint. Twist the floral wire around a pencil to form spirals!

Bat Napkin Rings

Attach the spiraled floral wire to the wreaths, by weaving it through and pinching it closed. Make sure the wire is where you want the "top" of the napkin ring to be! Flatten out the top portion of the wire where you are about to attach the bat!

Bat napkin ring feather boa take that feather boa off from around your neck, and cut a length long enough to be glued around the grapevine wreath. Be prepared to sneeze!! I used two boas for this project! Simply glue it around the wreath with your glue gun!

Black Bat feathers

Finally, attach your bat to the floral wire with your trusty glue gun!! I know I use A LOT of judging !!

Wicked craft week is what the final product looks like with and without a napkin in it!!

Bat Napkins

Simply write on the bats with chalk to create your
 place cards and your dinner party is all set!!
