These adorable miniature paper cats are sure to add something special to your Halloween display this fall.
I’ve been visiting my family in Pennsylvania this fall, and am quite taken with primitive and ‘folk’ artwork; which are the styles that inspired these cute felines. This tutorial is a bit different than my usual craft ideas, because all you need to do is download the PDF for an instant decoration. I hope you enjoy this festive idea and leave a comment below if you’re feeling inspired!
You will need:
- A printer
- Heavy white paper
- Colored pencils or markers
1 Download and print the Halloween Cat Shelf Sitter page on sturdy white paper. Card stock or heavy matte paper works best.
2 Color in the third cat with a cute design. Anything goes… try to use oranges, purples and greens for a real Halloween look.
3. Carefully cut around all three cats leaving about a 1/4 inch of white around the outline.
4 Fold each cat at the waist and display on shelves or tables in your home!
