Decorating for Halloween doesn't have to mean going to the store and buying decorations. With just a few recycled materials and some craft supplies, you can create these googly-eyed egg carton bats!
An empty egg carton
String or ribbon
Take an egg carton and cut out a row of three cups.
On the outside two cups, cut a number of small semicircles about 1/4" apart to give the illusion of bat wings.
Cover the three-cup carton in black paint.
After the paint dries, glue two googly-eyes in the middle cup.
On the top of the middle cup, poke two small holes about 1/4" apart using your scissors. Thread a string or ribbon through the holes. Tie onto a chandelier, centerpiece or in some trees outside!
