Tired of the old Halloween pumpkin decorating ideas you usually make every year? Here’s a cute DIY project you can do for a change – black cat o’lanterns!
It’s a little different yet still very much in keeping with Halloween. Black cats are associated with scary themes, Halloween included!
There’s definitely a lot less carving involved in this black cat pumpkin idea. So it’s also a great starting project for those who have no experience with pumpkin carving. It’s really easy to put together!
With the candle lights flickering through their eyes, these black cat pumpkins will surely be a front porch decor hit to passers-by. You can’t miss with this one. ;)
