As far as Halloween characters go, I think the black cat is commonly overlooked. You see tons of mummies, witches and monster crafts, but not very many black cat crafts.

So today I’m sharing a cute, not scary black cat made from a paper plate. So to make this cute kitty for Halloween, you’ll only need a few things.

Paper Plate Black CatFirst you’ll want to paint the entire back side of the paper plate. Then you’ll use the pattern I have provided to cut the cat pieces from the plate. Tape it all together and you’re all done!
