TP Roll Bat

All art projects & crafts require adult supervision. This post may contain affiliate links. Read our full disclosure policy.

Halloween is coming up fast and I am in love with Vampires and Bats this year. This is a fun Bat craft that can be used as a toy or hang them up for a cute Halloween Decoration. They would look great hung in grouping showing off their unique wings.

Items needed to make TP Roll Bat

Toilet Paper Roll


Black or Gray Paint

Coffee Filter

Washable Markers

Googly Eyes

White Paper

Spray Bottle filled with Water


Flatten the toile paper roll and draw a straight line with a triangle across the top of the roll.

Toilet Paper Roll Crafts are so much fun to do. You get to take an everyday object that gets thrown away and turn it into a masterpiece! Be sure to check out these other Toilet Paper Roll Crafts:

Cut along the line. Unfold the toilet paper roll and discard the piece you cut off.

Paint the toilet paper roll black or gray.

Glue googly eyes onto the bat.

Cut out two triangles from a white piece of paper. Glue the triangles underneath the eyes.

Once the Bat's body is completed it is now time to make the wings. To do this I used a coffee filter. Color it in with washable makers. I recommend placing a piece of paper underneath the coffee filter so that the markers do not bleed onto your table.

I always keep coffee filters stocked in my home and I don't even drink coffee. I keep them on hand for crafts! They are so much fun to create with. Check out these other coffee filter crafts...

Take a spray bottle filled with water and spray the coffee filter that has been colored on. Because you used washable markers, the colors will begin to bleed together. Allow enough time for the coffee Filter to dry completely.

Fold the dry coffee filter in half three times. Using scissors cut a scallop edge. Depending on your child's age, you might need to help them with this part.

Unfold the filter so that is just has one fold. It should look like this.

Pinch the filter down the middle and spread the outer edges apart.

Tape the coffee filter to the back of the bat.

I hope you have as much fun as we did making these TP Roll Bats. Be sure to check out all the Halloween Art & Craft Projects on the blog.
