This stuffed paper bag black cat craft is so easy and fun to make with kids on Halloween day. All you have to do is paint, glue, stuff the paper bag with anything from shredded paper to fabric remnants and staple. Voila! You got yourself a cute little cat.
You can also pair this craft with a good story about Pete the Cat or any of the books below that not only have cats as the main characters but are also Halloween stories.
We love simple and fun crafts that kids as young as toddlers or preschoolers can make. (Check out out collection of 200+ easy crafts for kids). And when it comes to Halloween crafts, we want them also not to be scary. We prefer smiley and silly instead.
And that is why our:
- Paper plate vampire needs a haircut
- Paper cup Frankenstein has a glowing nose
- Paper roll ghosts come with a sweet surprise
Today we’re making a paper bag Halloween black cat. While you don’t have to stuff the paper bag we preferred to take the extra step so the cat can stand on its on. This was it can make a nice Halloween decoration and you can place it anywhere, from the floor to the fireplace mantel.

Step 1: Start by drawing the cat’s ears on the paper bag and cut it out.
Step 2: Paint the front of the paper bag black and let it dry.
Step 3: Once the paint has dried, stuff the paper bag with anything from shredded paper, newspaper strips to fabric or yarn remnants. We used polyester fiberfill.
Step 4: Align the back and the front of the paper bag and staple the two together.
Step 5: Cut 2 little triangles from purple cardstock paper and glue them on the cat’s ears.
Step 6: Glue the googly eyes.
Step 7: Cut out whiskers and the cat’s mouth from white cardstock paper and the nose from orange cardstock paper. Glue them on the paper bag.
Step 8: Cut a curly little tail from black cardstock paper and glue it at the back of the paper bag. We also added a little black pom pom on the tip of the tail.
