Are you almost ready for Halloween? Here is a easy Halloween cat project you can put up in your home. I used a few Sizzix dies design by My Life Handmade to dress up a picture frame.
Last week I shared a project with a cute fox for an Autumn mini album. This week I want to share the transformation of the fox in a crazy cat for Halloween!
It is so hard to choose a favourite from Sizzix by My Life Handmade sets. To create my framed picture for Halloween I used 3 sets, Spooky Halloween of course, and two other beautiful Sizzix die set: Woodland and Great Outdoors.
I like Halloween even though it is not as widely celebrated here in Italy. I still think it is fun to create something.
This DIY project is very simple to make. That hat is adorable on top of the cat!
First, to transform the fox (Woodland set) into the cat I cut out the body from dark grey card.
Then I used the mouth and nose of the pumpkin (Spooky Halloween set) to create a Halloween cat.
From black card stock, I cut out the hat (also from the Spooky Halloween set) before adding it on my cat’s head.
Then I cut out an orange pumpkin and a black bat.
I also used the NEW Great Outdoors set, choosing to use the “Hello” to complete the sentiment, that I have printed.
To finish things off, I add two strips of patterned paper and wrapped a bit of baker’s twine around before attach on the picture frame.
Combined with three die sets, it makes for a super cute Trick or Treat picture frame!
Hope you enjoyed this Halloween home decor and that it gave you an idea on how you can use the dies to add some whimsy to your next papercraft project!
Hope you have a ‘spooky’ day! 😀
