Materials and tools to make Halloween Cat Paper Craft & Decorations:
( Some of the helpful resources are affiliate links. Full disclosure here. )
- toilet paper rolls and recycled tissue boxes, glue, scissors
- Optional : Halloween cat faces and tails template (download at the end)
- black craft paint, and these white gel pens are great for drawing details on black!
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!
These cats look fantastic among pumpkins and brooms. These DIY witches’ brooms are so easy to make, and free too!
