Batman Cork Figure

I have a totally BATMAN obsessed son so I was quite excited about making this Batman figure for him to play with. Can you believe that this Batman craft is just a painted cork? Cork figures are great to play with in imaginary small worlds.

Take a look at all our Batplane, Batman handprint or spiderman cake in a jar.


To Make this cork craft you will need:



  • Cork
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Black felt
  • Acrylic paint 
  • Fine black sharpie


How to make a cork Batman figure


I started by making the ears for Batman's mask.  I cut off 2 small pieces of pipe cleaner and folder them in half.  Then I made 2 small holes in the top of the cork using a skewer.  I put a bit of glue on the ends of the pipe cleaners and poked them into the holes. 

I used acrylic paint to paint the bottom part of the cork dark grey for Batman's body and then I painted his face in a skin colour.

Once the paint had dried I used black paint to add on Batman's mask.

I waited for the black paint to dry and then used yellow paint to add on Batman's eyes and badge.  The bat sign and mouth were drawn on later using a fine black sharpie.  I finished Batman off by sticking a triangle of felt (with the top corner cut off) to the back of him for his cape.
