- Time:an hour + dry time
1Paint and/or use the bistro chalk markers draw a face on each pumpkin. Let dry.
2Cut out the top stem on each pumpkin, making a hole large enough for candy. Cut two 24" long pieces of 19 gauge Black craft wire. Fold each in half and bend in a "u" shape, and then twist it together to make one solid wire. Cut holes on each side of the pumpkins, insert the wires, and twist to secure.
3Cut 2 cat ears out of Midnight (Black) cardstock. Add details to these ears with the White bistro chalk marker. Glue the ears to the top of the pumpkin.
4Glue the Black boa around the outside edge of the pumpkin's opening. Cut a 12" piece of the Black craft wire for the tail, and wrap the Black boa around the wire, leaving a 3" section bare. Make a hole in the back of the cat and insert the bare wire, twisting to hold it in place.
5Twist Orange and Black chenille stems together, then glue them to the "u" part of the craft wire to create a soft spot for the handle.
