Celebrate your favorite black cat this Halloween by making a No Carve DIY Black Cat Pumpkin
Before having the twins, my husband and I had a cat named Cosmo. On a cold and showing day, a few months after we got married, an orange tabby cat showed up at our front door and I fed him. And that was that. Since then we have owned at least one, but usually two, cats.
The cats have checked on my babies and snuggled with them, kept me company when my husband was deployed, and greet everyone who comes to our home.
Over the years we’ve had a total of five cats. Our sweet first cat named Cosmo, another orange tabby named Ranger, our calico cat Coco, our current tabby cat Artemis, and a black cat named Bear. Bear was the kitten of my sisters cat. The twins were at my parents house when he was born and so we had to have him!
Owning a black made me very aware of how important it is to keep black cats safe, especially around Halloween. To celebrate all the black cats out there this Halloween I made a No Carve DIY Black Cat Pumpkin.

I picked up a foam pumpkin that was already painted black but you could also get a regular foam pumpkin and paint it.
How to Make a Black Cat Halloween Pumpkin
While I didn’t really carve my pumpkin, I did make some slits for the cat ears. While you could just glue the ears to the outside of the pumpkin, I wanted them to be a bit more secure so I used a knife to create a slit on each side of the top of my pumpkin, wide enough to fit the foam ears.
Cut the ears out of the black foam sheet in a triangle shape. Then add a dab of hot glue and slip them into the slits that you have cut or just glue them directly to the outside of the foam pumpkin.
Create the nose using the pink felt and the gray pipe cleaners. Hold three pipe cleaners together and twist them together in the middle to create the whiskers.
Cut out a triangle with a curved side for the black cat nose. Glue the pipe cleaners to the felt and then glue that entire piece to your pumpkin.
The last step is to draw on the eyes. Use the white paint marker to create the eyes for your black cat pumpkin.
Ranger and Coco approve of the Black Cat Halloween Pumpkin!
