Cat Gift Sack

Have a Halloween gift for a friend? Present it in this happy fabric-face cat gift sack.

Fun Feline Pumpkin

Carve a cat-face pumpkin using our downloadable patterns for the face and ears. After carving the face, cut the ears out of black crafts foam and adhere them to the top of the pumpkin with hot glue. Cut three black chenille stems in half, poke a hole on each side of the cat's nose, and insert the stems into the holes for whiskers. Hot-glue a pretty bow to the top of the pumpkin.

Candlestick Cats

These candleholders might look vintage, but they're new creations. Crafted with papier-mache and paint, these kitty cats add old-fashioned flair to Halloween decor.

Cat Goody Bag

Use squares of felted wool to sew these cute cat goody bags for trick-or-treaters or Halloween party guests.

Cat Candy Container

Every witch needs a black cat companion. This dynamic Halloween duo isn't just for show -- they dispense candy, too.

Scaredy Cat Cutout

Pose this menacing black cat (made from black foam core) amidst a pumpkin display to create a spine-tingling Halloween scene.

Black Cat Pillow

One side of this pillow is designed for Halloween decor. When all the trick-or-treaters have gone home, flip it to showcase the Thanksgiving design on the other side.

Black Cat Treat Tin

Instead of treat bags, dole out these crazy cat goody buckets. Decorate an empty, unused paint can with scrapbooking papers and letters. Adhere a cardstock cat face, then add glue to the eyes and sprinkle with mini beads.

Cat Pumpkin with Ears

Set a pumpkin on its side and paint a cat face on the bottom. Simple triangle ears made from paper can be attached with pins. Learn more about painting pumpkins in the link below.

Editor's Tip: Propping the pumpkins up against steps, as we did here, keeps them from rolling. Or wedge a shim on both sides of each pumpkin to keep it in place.

Eerie Cat Luminaria

Light the path to your haunted mansion with these clever milk-jug luminarias.
