DIY – Halloween Cat Ears – Easy 5 Minute Craft

Halloween Cat EarsDIY – Halloween Cat Ears! Need a quick fix for a cute cat costume? Here’s a FREE Template for some printable cat ears…

Originally I was going to make these a week or more ago with black fur, but both major fabric outlets on the Gold Coast had SOLD OUT of black fur (that wasn’t $90 a metre!) way before Halloween. So, Plan B…

You can easily make these Halloween Cat Ears with just a couple of ordinary BOBBY PINS 🙂 They are more ‘positionable’ on your head than a headband. For me, I also prefer to a headband because as a sometimes glasses wearer, there is too much going on behind the ears 😉 with a headband.

You will need:

  • 2 x Bobby Pins
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How To:

Easy tutorial and with this how-to, one of the supplies is from your local hardware – plumbing section! If you’re in Australia, go to the Bunnings website and search for “fibre washer”.

You will need:

  • Fibre Washer. I used 28mm.
  • Iron on Mend Patches in Black.
  • Black Necklace.
  • A couple of black jump rings.

Attach your necklace and you have …diy halloween black cat necklace tutorial adorablestA minimalist Halloween Black Cat Necklace. My washer actually started out as a red one – I painted it with acrylic paint – it absorbs and holds it really well. I’m wondering whether to ‘glitter’ the ears too. I don’t have any black glitter at the moment, so next time I’m out shopping, I’ll check it out. What do you think, glitter or no glitter ears?

DIY – Cute Cat Candy Container

DIY - Cute Cat Candy Container Title PageDIY – Cute Cat Candy Container. These little kitties are made from empty toilet rolls and I’ve included the free template below for the cute cat face.

DIY - Cute Cat Candy Container SuppliesYou will need:

  • Empty Toilet Rolls. I was asking myself whether the size is standard across the world!? The template will accommodate a range of sizes.
  • Glue. I just used the simple stick kind.
  • Scissors. Minimal cutting.
  • Candy / Surprise. To fill for your sweetheart or friend. Wrapped if required.

DIY - Cute Cat Candy Container Steps 1 - 81. Flatten your toilet roll in half and crease.

2. Bring the crease to meet in the middle and then flatten again.

3. You should end up with a square toilet roll.

4. Add glue to the template back, a section at a time. Start with the front (face).

5. Position the face to leave some room for folding both the top and bottom.

6. Cut in at the bottom a little over 1cm on the creases.

7. Fold in – enough to make sure your candy won’t escape!

8. Fold the back of the ‘ears’ first, then the front (like a crescent shape).
