Cat Wood CutOut- Joann’s
Orange Spray Paint
Acrylic Paint – Yellow, Black, Purple, Lime Green, white
First, I took the old shutter and painted it with the orange spray paint.
Second, I decided against using the October cutout, because it was just a little too big for what I was looking for so, I ended up using the wooden stars and moon. I painted them with the Acrylic yellow paint.
Third, I painted the wooden cat cutout body black, his eyes lime green, and his hat purple.
Fourth, I used a thin paint brush with white paint to create the highlight effect around the entire cutout.
Fifth, I secured the cat cutout to the shutter using hot glue.
Sixth, I hot glued the yellow stars and moon around the shutter. I ended up deciding the yellow needed to be broken up some, so I used a couple more stars and painted them black and purple. Then hot glued them on as well. I made sure one of the stars covered the hole that the knob had left once I removed it.
Finally, I made a bow with the Halloween ribbon and hot glued it to his neck.
Here is the final result! What do you think? I really like how he came out and the lime green eyes just make him stand out too! I loved making this DIY Halloween Shutter and I hope you will give one a try too!
