Bat Signal Ornament

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na,, na, na, na, na, Batman!

When this bat signal goes up, this superhero {my nephew} will be ready to fight crime.

If you want to make the superhero in your life their own bat signal gather the following supplies:

Black Felt, Yellow Felt, Tacky Glue, Scissors,  2 1/2 inches of ribbon
* Optional: Black Embroidery Thread 

Using this pattern:

Cut 2 ovals out of the yellow felt and cut the bat out of black felt. 

Apply tacky glue around the perimeter of the bat and gently apply it to one of the yellow ovals.

*Optional:  Embroider the name and date on the back of the ornament.  By doing this, you also have the option of using it as a gift tag for the top of a present.

Fold your ribbon in half {I added a French knot to secure the ribbon to the back oval, though optional, this will provide another measure of guaranteeing the ribbon will stay affixed to the ornament}.  Apply tacky glue around the perimeter of the back oval, under and over the ribbon and across the middle, gently attach the bat signal.

Pow!  Bam!  Zzzap!  Done.

Holy felt ornament Batman!
