Cat Jack-o-lanterns


    • Gather cat shaped pumpkins. Body – long or pear shaped. Head – small, round. Pumpkins for the body should be stable, no wobbling. Feet – mini pumpkins, 2/cat. Tail – cucumber or skinny gourd. Ears – cardstock or felt.
    • Other Supplies: Black floral spray. Wooden floral picks – 5 or 6/cat. Poster putty.
    • Clean small pumpkin. Turn upside down, and fit on top of large pumpkin. Pumpkin hole may need to be adjusted for stability.
    • Set head on base. Draw on eyes. Carve eyes.
    • Cut out ears. Mark position on head. Carve shallow channels to hold hears. Do not cut thru pumpkin. Curved channels make more realistic ears.
    • Stuff head with newspaper. Paint head, feet, tail, and body. Let dry.
    • Remove newspaper from head. Position head on body. If head wobbles, pound floral picks into body to hold head in place.
    • Place candle on plate and secure to pumpkin with poster putty.
