How to Fold Bat Napkins

It is so easy to fold napkins into bats for a fun touch on a Halloween table! I used black 20-inch napkins (50.8 centimeters) that I bought from World Market (click here to find them).


1) First, iron your napkins to get out the wrinkles. A few wrinkles won’t matter as you can see from mine below!

2) Fold the napkin in half to make a triangle.

3) Fold the napkin again to make a smaller triangle.

4) Fold up the pointed bottom so that 2 or 3 inches (5-7.5 centimeters) extend past the long flat side of the napkin.

5) Turn under about 1 1/2 inches (3.8 centimeters) of the point.

6) Place a finger on the bottom middle of the napkin. Fold up a wing on the left side.

7) Fold up a wing on the right side. Smooth the wings so they lie flat.

8) With your finger, make a small indention in the middle of the “head.”

9) Add stick-on crystal eyes if you want! Experiment with other colors to match your Halloween party! Click here to see the Halloween table using these napkins.
