Candy Corn and Bat Halloween Ornaments

image source
I have been seeing these Halloween trees every where recently. Black and scraggly trees, that people are decorating with cute Halloween ornaments. My mom has a little Halloween tree and I can't get over how cute it is. I decided to make her some ornaments to fill it out a little.
You will need for the bat:
The smallest pot you can find
Black and white paint
Black foam
Googly eyes
Black ribbon

You will need for the candy corn:
The smallest pot you can find
Orange, white, black and yellow paint
googly eyes
The black paint covered the little pot very well. It needed about two coats of black paint before I added the white face. I did paint the inside of this pot to keep the black through the entire project. I folded a small sheet of foam in half and free hand cut the wings. I then hot glued them to the bat. Loop both ends of a ribbon into the top whole of your ornament, tie them in a big not on the other side. If you tie your knot big enough on the other side, it won't slip out through the hole in the pot.
I painted my candy corn pots with a couple of layers of white paint before I added the other colors. I then painted them to match candy corn pattern before I added the eyes and ribbon.
