Use Poms to Paint our Cat in the Hat Craft
To make our Pom Painted Cat in the Hat Craft you will need just a few supplies.
Those supplies include our Hat Template, base cardstock, we chose blue colors, red and white acrylic paint, a black sharpie, clothespins, and poms.
Cat in the Hat Craft Supplies Needed
- Hat template
- Blue cardstock
- Acrylic paint – red, white
- Black sharpie
Pom Painted Cat in the Hat Step by Step Instructions
Begin by printing the hat template.
Cut out the template and trace on the base cardstock using a black sharpie. Also draw lines going across the hat to separate the red and white colors.
Now, gather the red and white paint. Pour either in a palette or paper plate. Clamp the poms you’re going to use to paint in the clothespins. Smaller poms will give you more precise coverage while larger poms will be quicker at filling more space.
Then, dip a pom in the paint and begin stamping the lines with the colors of the hat.
Use one pom brush for red and another for white.
Continue stamping down the hat.
Such a fun, simple, and great last minute crafty art project to celebrate Dr. Seuss Day and Read Across America!
