Step 2

Fold a black piece of construction paper in half. Draw a bat wing, be sure the body side of the wing is shaped to the curve of the foam ball. Draw an ear shape. The inside of the ear should be straighter than the outside to stand more upright. Draw a curve at the bottom to match the shape of the foam ball. Cut out.

Step 3

With black electrical tape. Tape a toothpick halfway on the back of both wings and both ears.
