Set this little kitty cat on your porch for an adorable Halloween display! You can make it out of a few simple items. I’ll show you how to make this fun pumpkin Halloween craft. Read on… 🙂

You’ll Need:

  • 2 large pumpkins – One oval pumpkin that will stand upright for the body, and one squatting round one for the head.
  • One can of black spray paint – I recommend Rust-Oleum! It doesn’t flake like the others
  • Optional – one can of glitter blast spray paint – black (I found mine at Michaels Craft Store)
  • 1 roll of Wide Halloween colored ribbon for the bow
  •  3-D paint for the eyes – I used glow in the dark paint & I found it in the fabric paint aisle at Michaels
  • 1 little pink pom-pom for the nose
  • Optional witch hat –
  • Black felt for the ears – cut into cat ear shapes
  • 1 sheet of self adhesive black foam for the whiskers – cut 6 little strips for the whiskers
  • 1 large chenille bendy for the tail
  • Hot glue

  • Stack the short pumpkin onto the bottom tall pumpkin and steady them
  • Paint cat eyes onto the top pumpkin
  • Attach pink pom-pom for the nose
  • Peel adhesive backing off of whiskers and apply 3 on either side of nose
  • If you’re using a witch hat – apply the felt ears to either side of the hat with hot glue- so it looks like they are poking through, and set hat on the cat head
  • If your not using a hat, apply the felt ears to the top of the pumpkin with hot glue
  • Attach chenille strip for the tail to the back side of the bottom pumpkin – secure with a push pin if necessary

  1. This looked like a great idea. Last night I painted the pumpkins with an all purpose spray paint. This morning the paint is cracking and is flaking off all over the place.

    • I am so sorry to hear that. What a bummer! My go-to spray paint, that doesn’t let me down is most always Rustoleum! There are so many different versions of spray paint, now. It’s hard to keep up with the varieties. I hope you find one that holds better.
