Create a spooky trio of glossy black cats to watch over trick-or-treaters at your door.
All you need are a few pumpkins in feline shapes ― long or pear-shaped for the body, small and round for the face.
Look for body shapes with character and a stable base. They can lean to one side but shouldn't wobble.
Choose a tall one for an elegant cat, or a squat orange heirloom for a chubby cat curled on its paws. Test a few "heads" until you find a good match.
This twist on the traditional jack-o'-lantern cuts down on some of the usual pumpkin cleaning: No need to hollow out the body. Just clean out and carve the head, then add mini pumpkin paws, curvy cucumber tails, and ears from stiffened felt or black card stock from the craft store. Then, light the candle, get the candy, and watch your Halloween cats come to life.
