Halloween Bat Craft Coaster DIY

Learn how to make a Halloween bat craft coaster using resin! I’m not a fan of real bats but if you give me a bat craft, I’m all over it!

I’m trying to remember if I shared this story before but bats and rats Freak. Me. Out

I mean, not a little…

I think my bat fear comes from way back when.

There was an episode of America’s Funniest Home Videos – like right when that show started – and someone sent in a video with a bat on the window, with his little bat hands balled up into fists and it was pounding on the window like he wanted to come in.

Ummm…just NO!

  • Resin
    • When deciding on which resin to use for your coasters, you need to keep in mind whether you want it just for cold cups or for hot as well.
      • If only for cold drinks, you can be flexible and use whatever brand you like:
      • If you want it to work for both hot and cold drinks, you need to look for a heat resistant resin, like these:
        • FX Poxy ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500° F.

Halloween Bat Craft Directions

Step 1

I mixed an ounce and a half of resin and added chunky black and fine purple glitter and poured it into the coaster mold.

I popped the bubbles with my lighter, I let it cure for a minimum of 12 hours before removing it from the mold.

Step 2

Once cured, I removed it from the mold and used paint markers to draw the face.

Step 3

Once the paint dried, I mixed one more ounce of resin and domed it on top of the coaster. I used my stir stick to move the resin to the edges and used a lighter to pop the bubbles.

Step 4

Once dry, I used the Halloween bat craft coaster to trace around and create a template for the bat wings. Then, I cut them out.

**Be sure to watch the video for a tip on how I got the wings even the same shape!

Step 5

I traced the template onto black craft foam and cut it out. Then, I glued the coaster onto the craft foam.
