DIY Bat | Halloween Decoration | Wire wrapping tutorial


This tutorial forms part of my Halloween series.  This time it is a bat. I think that Bats are both cute and creepy. In this tutorial, I used the figure 8 weave or Basketweave in order to give the wings more life. You can do this weave through the entire pendant.

You can even bend the wings to make it look as if they are flapping. Unlike the others, this tutorial has no beads or stones but you could incorporate some using techniques you have learned in past tutorials, for example, this one.


0.8mm wire 
0.4mm/ 20 gauge wire


Flush wire cutters

Round nose pliers

Chain nose pliers
