Ring of cardboard (empty cereal boxes work wonderfully)
construction paper (black)
small piece of wool
Trace a small plate and a large plate onto a piece of old cardboard.
Empty cereal boxes or frozen dinner boxes work well as a source of recycled cardboard.
It doesn't matter if you go over the folds of the cardboard
Cut a small strip of cardboard and glue it onto the back of the ring over any folds in the cardboard.This will reinforce the ring.
Cut strips of construction paper (about 1 1/2 inches by 4 inches)
glue the strips into rolls (like making a paper chain)
Glue the rolls of construction paper onto the wreath. We made them all black, but you could use black and orange or black, orange and green.
Fold a piece of black construction paper in half and cut out a 1/2 bat shape (this will make both wings of the bat symmetrical). Use white pencil crayon to draw on facial features.
Tape a small piece of wool to the bat and the wreath so it hangs in the middle.
