Black Cat Halloween Treat Cup

Treat cup decorated by Mia, age 3 1/2
This craft was adapted from one found on this website. The directions for making this treat cup are very similar to the directions for making a bat Halloween treat cup.

Materials Needed:
  • tin can
  • black paint
  • paint brush
  • black and pink construction paper
  • 2 white pipe cleaners (or yarn)
  • pink pipe cleaner (or yarn)
  • glue
  • scissors
  • clear tape (optional)
  • wiggle eyes
  • black pipe cleaner (optional)
  1. Paint the outside of a tin can black. We used a foam brush and dabbed it to get into the ridges of the can.
  2. While paint is drying, cut out 2 triangles from black construction paper for ears. Then cut 2 slightly smaller triangles from pink construction paper. Glue pink triangles onto black triangles.
  3. Cut another pink triangle for the nose.
  4. Cut a pink pipe cleaner in half and then bend one half to make the cat's mouth.
  5. Cut 2 white pipe cleaners in half and then bend each new length of pipe cleaner in half to make whiskers.
  6. Glue wiggle eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and whiskers to the can. (We used Aleene's Tacky Glue and then added some clear tape to secure the pipe cleaners.)
  7. You may wish to add a black pipe cleaner to the back of the can and curl it to look like a tail.
  8. Fill with goodies and enjoy.
