I LOVE bat and owl jewelries. I've always thought of making an owl pendant myself but haven't made one yet.

Anyways, I came up with this idea of making a bat pendant using thick papers and couldn't wait to try it out, besides it would be perfect for Halloween, a quick and easy Halloween craft. If you're not into wearing costumes or makeups then you should give these pendants a try, they'll add a little something something!

I've seen these bat pendants in shops. The pendant turned out quite good. This instructable will show you how to make this bat pendant.  It could be a quick and easy Halloween craft.

You can search the internet for bat patterns, adjust the size as you want and print it out to use it as a template. The pendant I made is 2cm X 3 cm.
I did freehand drawing of a bat on a piece of paper and used scissor to cut it out.

I used thick paper to make the pendants.
Place the cutout bat pattern on the thick paper and trace around the edges using a pen or pencil.
I cut out 3 bat shapes out of the thick paper for each pendant, you can add more layers to make the pendant thicker.
Now, simply glue the layers (cutout bat shapes) one over another.
