Glow in the dark Bat Canvas - EASY Halloween Tutorial!

Glow in the dark Bat Canvas

– White Canvas (I bought mine for $1 at the Dollar store.)
– Black cardboard (or construction paper) to make bats or purchase pre-made bats.
– Multi-Surface Glow-in-the-Dark Finish from Martha Stewart Crafts
– Foam Brush
– Glue dots or adhesive strips

Step 1: Apply 3 coats of Glow-in-the-dark finish on the canvases. Let dry 1 and 2 hours between each coat.

Step 2: If you do not have pre-made bats (I used Dimensional Bat Silhouettes from Martha Stewart Crafts), make some out of black cardboard or construction paper. (You can check out the No Sew Bat Pillow that I made, it demonstrates how I made the bat.) Step 3: Use sticky dots or adhesive strips to stick the bats onto the canvases.
