Black Cat Painted Rock Craft
This Halloween rock painting idea is super simple and you can make them with any sized rocks or pebbles you like. Just give your rocks a wash first and make sure they’re thoroughly dry before you start painting.
If you want to leave your painted rocks outside when you’ve finished, I’d recommend coating them with a waterproof varnish first.

How to Make Black Cats With Rock Painting
1 – Start by painting your chosen rocks black. We love to use acrylic paint because it covers with just one coat.
2 – Look at the shape of your rock and decide whether you are make just a black cat head or whether you are making a body too. Glue on your googly eyes accordingly. You’ll see in the photo above the upper rock has eyes in the middle to make a cat head. The lower rock has eyes on the side to make a head and body.
3 – Cut some short sections of pipe cleaners and twist them together to make the cat’s whiskers.
4 – Glue on the cat’s whiskers and then a small pompom nose.
5 – Cut out some triangle outer ears from black paper or cardstock and some inner ears from yellow. Glue them together.
6 – If you are making a black cat rock with a head and body then you’ll need to cut a paper or cardstock too. To go with our Halloween cat theme we made a spiky bushy tail.
7 – Finish off your black cat rock painting craft by glueing on the ears and tail and drawing on any additional features with a white Posca pen. We added smiles and front legs.
