Isn’t he cute? Here kitty-kitty! This black cat won’t bring you bad luck and he’s a fun project for Halloween.

What You Need:

  • 1 paper plate
  • Black paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • White craft glue
  • 2 large green wiggle eyes
  • 1 small pink pom-pom
  • Pattern [click for pattern]

What You Do:

  1. Paint the backside of the paper plate black and let dry.

  2. Turn the plate over to the unpainted side. Cut out the body using the pattern. Cut out the tail and head from the remaining plate. Set scraps aside.

  3. Use tape to attach the tail and the head to the back of the plate, using the photo as a guide.

  4. Glue on wiggle eyes and pink pom-pom for the nose.

  5. From the scraps of black plate, cut 6 thin whiskers of equal length and glue to the cat’s face.
Tip: Colored wiggle eyes are available at your local craft supply store.
