Here is a cute bat who is ready for a Halloween party! This design is fast and easy.

1. Start by painting a black circle where you want your design to go.

2.Add two ears on top of the circle. Next paint on the wings. The top of the wing will have one point in the middle, a point at the end, the curve under to make the bottom of the wing. The points on the bottom will follow the points on top.

3. Add red face paint along the top of the wings, inside the ears and for the mouth shape. Paint a line coming from the inner point, down to the bottom of the wing.
