Begin to create the bat by gluing the inner ears to the bat’s outer ears. Next, take the eyes and glue them a little below the ears.

Take the vampire bat teeth and glue them just below the nose. If your bat is light colored you can use a black marker to draw on a smile as well. For the black one we left it off, but you can see what we mean on the purple version.
