How Do You Make Bats With Cricut?

Creating projects with a Cricut machine is a great way to express your creativity. From home decor to custom clothing, the options are nearly endless when it comes to Cricut projects.

One popular project that can be made with a Cricut is a bat. Bats are an easy and fun project to make with a Cricut machine, and the results can be both entertaining and decorative.

Gather Your Supplies

Before you start making your bat, make sure you have all the supplies you need. You will need some cardstock or other thin craft paper, transfer tape, and of course your Cricut machine set up and ready to go. Depending on the look you want, you may also want some additional materials such as glitter or paint.

Choose Your Design

Now that you have all of your supplies ready, it’s time to choose your design. You can either find a pre-made design online or create your own using the Cricut software.

If you choose a pre-made design, simply upload it into the software and adjust it as needed to fit the size of your project. If creating your own design, use the software’s tools to create the shape of a bat before adding any details such as eyes or wings.

Cut Out Your Bat

Once you have chosen or created your design, it’s time to cut out your bat! Place your cardstock onto the cutting mat and load it into the machine.

Select “vinyl” as your material type and adjust any other settings as needed before pressing “Go”. The Cricut will then cut out the shape of your bat from the paper according to your design specifications.

Transfer Your Bat

Once your bat is cut out, it’s time to transfer it onto another material if desired. To do this, place some transfer tape over top of the cutout before carefully peeling away both layers at once – leaving only the transfer tape withthe cutout adhered on top. Then carefully place this onto whatever material you want – such as fabric – before pressing down firmly until secure.

Decorate Your Bat

Now that you have transferred your cutout onto another material (if desired), it’s time for decoration! This is where you get creative – try painting or coloring in details like eyes or wings if desired before adding any embellishments like glitter or rhinestones for an extra sparkle effect.

Final Touches

When all decorations are complete, give everything one last look over before calling it done! Make sure everything looks perfect before displaying proudly for everyone to enjoy.


Making bats with a Cricut machine is an easy and fun way to add an extra touch of creativity to any project! With just some simple supplies like cardstock and transfer tape along with either a pre-made design from online sources or one created from scratch within the software itself – making bats with a Cricut can be both rewarding and enjoyable!
