Fun Halloween Cat Craft for Kids and Adults

Got a cat lover in the family? Making this easy pink Halloween cat craft is a really spooktacular way to celebrate Halloween with kids. My eldest granddaughter came to visit and making these pink cat craft for Halloween was a great past time we could enjoy together.

Cat Craft Halloween Supplies

The supplies for this Halloween cat craft are easy to find at the Dollar Store or craft store. I have seen the Halloween cat skeletons at both the dollar tree and Michaels in Canada. Heres everything we used:

  • Large cardboard or plastic sheet floor protector
  • Painting clothes, lots of rags
  • Dollar tree small and medium paint brushes
  • Black and pink acryllic paint
  • E6000 glue
  • Black glitter
  • Halloween skeleton ornament

Adding pink to a macbre Halloween decoration makes it instantly more fun, and pretty. All little girls love Halloween bling even this rough and tumble little girl loved it. Adding pink and glitter takes all the macabre scariness away, leaving cute halloween kitty.

You will need a skeleton ornament of some kind, we purchases two of these cat skeletons from Michaels. They are on sale two for one. I noticed some dog skeletons at the dollar store that were very similar, but my girl wanted to make a Halloween cat craft.

Painted Pink Halloween Cat Craft How To

As it was already quite cold outside these cute Halloween cats had to be painted inside. The first step should be protecting all the surfaces around you. Its much more fun when you don’t have to worry about paint splatters. I hauled up a big piece of cardboard and we painted ours on the kitche floor picnic style. Paint covered old clothes and loads of rags, are helpful as well.

Painting the Cat Craft for Halloween

Start by painting the entire cat pink, we began by doing the inside of the cat skeleton first, and then the outside. Don’t paint the black areas of the Halloween cat skeleton. Once painted double check that you haven’t missed anything especially in the joints and the areas between the bones. I was really pleased as my 10 year old painted hers completely on her own.

Let the first coat of paint dry for half an hour and then repeat with a second coat of pink paint.

Using the black areas of the skeleton as a guide, paint the eyes, nose, and ears of the head. We also paintedd and sparked the toenails black for extra bling. Let the paint dry and add a second coat of the black paint. I think the results already make a nicer Halloween cat decoration.

Once your Halloween cat crafts are dry, apply the E6000 glue with s small brush, just where the black areas are. Once painted immediately cover with a thick sparkling coating of black glitter. Let dry.

Decorating the Halloween Cat Craft Skeleton

The pink Halloween cats look cute with their glittery black eyes and stylish nails, and with more time I could have decorated them more with a black sparkling tutu, or bow barrette. Halloween is so fun to decorate for.

Instead I grabbed a favorite chalkboard, drew a haunted house on it, and some sparkling fairy lights.

  • Place on the end of a buffet or mantel.
  • Place in the bathroom with a light behind it.
  • Display on a stack of books wrapped in sparkly black paper.
  • Put them out on a Halloween front porch with dollar tree flames candles inside.
