Decorate your wall with flying 3D bats for Halloween! Download and cut out the free Halloween bats SVG with a Cricut or Silhouette.
Fun fact: a group of flying bats is called a cauldron.
This cauldron of bats is cut out of just two pieces of black, 8.5 x 11-inch cardstock. (Plus a scrap of red glitter cardstock for the eyes.)
Materials needed to decorate your wall with 3D Halloween bats
- the free SVG -it’s Design # 83 – 3D Halloween Bats in the Free Files Folder

- regular Scotch tape
- Blue painter’s tape to put them on the wall

Just click the eye icon next to the layers you don’t need.
Assemble the Halloween bats
All of these bats are cut from two letter-sized pieces of black, 110 lb. cardstock. (Plus a scrap of red glitter cardstock for the eyes.)
No need to find your bone folder; it’s easy to bend the wing along the score lines.
Don’t bother to get out the glue… taping the glitter ovals to the bat’s back is much easier and less messy.
This bat is ready to fly.
Just roll up a few little pieces of blue painter’s tape and stick the bodies to the wall.
The glitter cardstock glistens in lower light.
These bats are easy and ridiculously quick to make… but a cauldron of bats looks amazing on your wall!
Enjoy making your Halloween bats from the free SVG.
