Napkin bat


  • Black Square Napkins

Step by step

Fold the napkin to make a triangle.

The tip of the triangle should be pointed at you. Take the two points and make a new bend towards you. This time, about two inches.

The napkin will be shaped like a paper boat. With a small triangle that will still point to you.

Fold one end over the piece. It should be on top of the triangle that points to you.

This way you’ll be making one of the wings of the bat. Return the wing to its position, but leave a two-centimeter fold.

Repeat the procedure with the other end of the napkin.

Once the second fold is made, you’ll have the bat armed.

To make the image stronger, use your index finger to make a small bend in what would be the bat’s head.

  • Black cardboard
  • Silicone gun

Step by step

Take a napkin and place it in the center of your hand.

Close your hand a little bit to make a hole.

Put a handful of chocolate dagrees, type M&M’S, in the hole.

Close the napkin, being careful not to tear it. With the yarn, tie a knot so that it doesn’t open.

All the napkin that is left over, above the worsted knot, must be wrinkled, shaping it from the stem of the pumpkin.

When you feel satisfied with the shape of the stem, use the worsted to give it the final finish.

Give it as many turns as necessary to cover the entire napkin stem with the green yarn.

If the stem is too big and you feel you must use a lot of material, cut it out a little with the scissors.

On the black cardboard, cut out the eyes and mouth of a typical Halloween pumpkin. It should be proportional to the chocolate dagger pumpkin. This will make the effect more realistic.

Heat the silicone gun and when it is at the ideal temperature, stick the pieces of cardboard on your pumpkin.

Arrange each of the Halloween napkins on your table, besides helping with the decoration, it will be a great gift for your guests.
