DIY Dollar Tree Halloween Door Bats & $100 Giveaway

[pinit]Printable Bats[pinit]

As you may know, Dollar Tree is one of my favorite places to go for creative project supplies.  I love wandering through the aisles letting my imagination run wild with ideas.  Just recently, I discovered Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club, which is packed with crafts, recipes, décor, tips, contests, insider information, frugal fun ideas, and other awesomeness.   You can join too, for free, and get a chance to win a $20 Dollar Tree gift card!   You will never run out of seasonal inspiration, as the creative content changes each month.  Just pick out a project, print the project sheet or save it to your phone, and then use it as your shopping list in the store!  Today I am sharing how I created this bat door using Dollar Tree supplies and a bat template I found while browsing the fun Halloween projects.  It is super simple and it cost just $3.

***I received compensation for this post.  All opinions are mine and honest!


Dollar Tree Craft Halloween

You can use Dollar Tree black poster board, construction paper or foam sheets for your bats; For the number of bats I made, I used 2 sheets of poster board

Scissors or Die cut machine with software you can use to cut imported images

Bat Template Available at Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club

Printer unless you are using die cut machine

Clear tape



Dollar Tree Crafts

Download and print the bat template from Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club “Front Door Bat Printable” project, or download and open in your die cut machine’s software.  I used Sure Cuts A Lot (which I don’t think is available anymore) and my Cricut machine.

If not using die cut machine, cut out the bats on the free template with scissors,tape to your black poster board and cut around them to create your bats.

    If I won I would use it to decorate for Christmas. We had to move across country the week before last Christmas and so we never got to decorate last year. And we couldn’t bring everything with us on the move. Decorations were one thing that was sacrificed. We were gifted a new tree last month so if I win my project would be to deck it out to make up for last year. I think my kids would really love helping make and recreate new ornaments.
