Black Cats Halloween Craft

You never know what you're going to find at a Rummage sale. It's so fun to paw through all the random pieces of someone else junk to find some crafty inspiration. Well, a recent rummage sale gave me the perfect spooky inspiration for my Halloween mantle: Cats. This rummage sale was *filled* with cat memorabilia. You couldn't escape it. 



Seeing as I'm not incredible fond of these untrainable, self-absorbed, toxic pooping, vomitous scags  sweet creatures, I found the rummage sale to be slightly unsettling. Then my mind turned to Halloween....and I came up with an idea. I collected up a selection of random porcelain cats.

And, spray painted them black.

I'm really excited to show you the rest of my mantle!!
