1. Paint the clothespin black.
2. To make the cat’s shirt, cut a strip of green paper. Scallop one edge. Glue dot the paper around the clothespin cat. Glue dot half of a pipe cleaner to the back of the cat to be arms. To make the tutu, cut 2 strips of green paper, 2” x 12”. Accordion fold each back and forth. (Make folds about 1/2 inch.) Punch a hole in the end of each fold. Glue dot the end of one strip to the other. Sew a piece of silver ribbon through the holes. Glue dot the remaining ends together. Slide onto the cat and tie into a bow.
4. Draw green cat eyes on the cat’s face. Add black lines to the center of each eye. Draw a pink nose and a smile on the cat’s face. Cut a pipe cleaner in half and tuck one end between the legs as a tail. Secure with glue dots.
5. Cut a circle of orange and draw on a jack o’lantern face with the black Sharpie. Glue dot a 2” piece of silver ribbon to the pumpkin as a purse handle.
