Cat Dressed as a Witch Costume

Time: 1 hour

Effort: Easy — some sewing required


  • Black pants
  • Black top
  • Witch hat
  • Black cape
  • Cat ears and tail
  • White or pale-colored foundation
  • Black eyeliner
  • Gray eye shadow
  • Red lipstick
  • Old straw broom (available at craft stores, if you don't have one already)
  • Safety pin

Instructions: Prepare the hat by cutting two slits in it to accommodate the cat ears. Have your child dress in the black top, pants, and cape. Attach the cat tail to the back of the pants with a pin.

Apply foundation for a pale, catlike face. With the gray eye shadow, fill in/contour around the hairline and under the cheekbones to give the appearance of a gray and white kitty. Draw whiskers with black eyeliner. Outline the eyes and lips, then fill in the lips with red lipstick. Top off with the hat and broom!
