This trio of kitties are adorable and you can throw them together in minutes once you have your wood. I used 2 x 4 scraps but 1 x 4 wood also works great. You can cut the ear part with a good hand saw if that’s all you have. Paint them and add some ribbon and googly wiggle eyes. Set them in your window and see if you don’t get compliments on ’em! There’s a downloadable pattern if needed but mine are basically 6″, 5″ and 4″ tall with a triangle cut out to form the ears. A super easy Halloween craft!
