Materials and tools to make Halloween Cat Paper Craft & Decorations:

( Some of the helpful resources are affiliate links. Full disclosure here. )

Step 1: cut Halloween cat faces and tails

The body of each cat is made from a toilet paper roll. The baby cat bodies are made from half  a toilet paper roll. You can also cut paper towel rolls to smaller sections of different heights.

The cat faces and tails are made from cardboard paper box ( like tissue box, cereal box, etc) cutouts. You can download the cat faces and tails templates at the end,  print and glue them to the cardboard, or paint your own!

Step 2: add details and assemble

I painted the upper part of the cat torsos with bright colors, so the faces would stand out more, vs black against black.

Glue everything together, now it’s time to create some Halloween decorations with your black cats!

Do you love recycled crafts like I do? One of my favorite place to visit is FaveCrafts. They have a section here featuring lots of creative recycled projects!

These cats look fantastic among pumpkins and brooms. These DIY witches’ brooms are so easy to make, and free too!

Here is the template of the cat faces and tails for you to download! Use them as a guide to create your own cat family! Tag us on instagram @apieceofrainbow if you make it.  We would love to see it!
