I just used some plywood and cut out this bat. I added some halloween lights to the back.
Step 1: My How to Video
Step 2: Cut the Bat Pattern Out
-Print out your pattern.
-Apply double sided tape to pattern.
-Put pattern on plywood.
-Cut pattern with jig saw or band saw
-Drill holes for the Lights
-Cut and glue on blocks to wrap lights and add space from wall.
- Paint back white and front black.
Step 3: The Lights!
- Insert 120v neon red lamps for eyes
-Wrap your led color changing lights on the back
-Cut plug off for lights and an extension cord.
-Solder eyes and lights to an extension cord
*** If you are not comfortable with electrical wiring you could just use the last two bulbs on led lights for the eyes!
Step 4: Lights Change From Orange to Purple
Step 5: All Done!
Links to all the lights and the Bat pattern I used can be found in the description on my VIDEO
