Cat O Lanterns

Now that September is ending, I will actually acknowledge that the scariest of holidays is on it’s way. Halloween is so much fun for the kids and I. We love to dress up in fun (not scary) costumes, carve some jack-o-lanterns, and go get some candy. Sometimes, though, it feels like the old staid and true traditions become the old staid and stale. This year I have decided to change it up a little. I went searching for some new ideas and found this one from one of my favorite magazines, Sunset.

This cat-o-lantern is a great idea for a little twist on the traditional jack-o-lantern, It takes a lot less gutting and carving, meaning it is safer and cleaner to make. It does take some selective oddball pumpkin and gourd choices, paint and skewers. But, with a little creativity and time these cats can slide together for a unique look on your porch this October 31st. Happy Halloween! Here are some other fun black cat related Halloween crafts. Love ‘em.
