Vampire Bat

★★★★★ ★★★★★

Make a bunch of bats to hang from your front porch or doorway, or to decorate for a Halloween party. The red gems really bring out the look of vampire thirst!

Step: 1

Bead Colors Needed:

  • Prickly Pear - 6
  • Purple - 90
  • Dark Grey - 139
  • Black - 238

You will also need:

  • 2 large square pegboards
  • Scissors and clear tape
  • A household iron and ironing paper
  • Tweezers
  • Three red adhesive gems
  • Thread or cord for hanging

See the Supply List for beads and tools you can purchase here.

Step: 2

Download the PDF for the Vampire Bat Project Pattern. Assemble the 2 square pegboards side by side to create your project. If you are using clear pegboards, slide the actual-size pattern underneath them. Place your beads following the pattern.

Step: 3

Ask an adult to fuse your designs. Place your pegboard on a flat, heat-safe surface. Set a household iron to the medium setting. Place ironing paper over the pegboard. In a circular motion, begin to iron the project. When ironed properly, the beads will still have open centers. DO NOT OVER-IRON as this will cause the beads to close and can make assembly of your project more challenging. Let the design cool.

Step: 4

Remove the paper and bead design from the pegboard. Flip the design over to expose the non-fused side. Repeat the fusing. Let cool completely. Once the design is cool, peel off the ironing paper. Your pegboards and ironing paper are reusable.

Note: Beads need heat for about 10-20 seconds per side to fuse evenly. Lift the paper occasionally to see how the beads are fusing. Additional heating time may be required.

Step: 5

ASSEMBLY: Thread a hanger through the bat’s head. Add red adhesive gems for the eyes and mouth.
