Candace 31 Days Bat Barrette

Okay, it’s not so spooky but it is sparkly!  And it’s super easy to make, too!  This was inspired by Tiffany Windsor’s Felted Floral Headband from last week’s show.  Grab some felt and craft foam and get to makin’!

Materials:

Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Peel and Stick Sheets
Aleene’s Super Gel Glue
Felt
Black craft foam
Inka Gold orange metallic cream
Scissors
Barrette base

Bat Template

Cut 4 different size circles of felt the largest of which will need to be 1/2′ wider than the barrette base.Cut from the outer edge of each circle to toward the center ending 1/2″ from the center

Cut points or rounded ends on each petal.

Cut a strip of felt 3/4″ x 2″Cut a craft foam bat using my print out.
Using your finger, brush a very small amount of metallic paste to the tips of the flowers.Cut strips of the Fabric Fusion sheets to fit in the center of each flower circle, on the back of the bat, on the barrette base and felt strip.

Stick all the layers together and stick the flower to the barrette base.

Put the felt strip through the underside of the barrette and stick to the bottom of the flower.
Add jewel eyes to the bat and you’re ready to wear it!
