The coffee station is a great place to add a little holiday flair. It’s more than a coffee station, it obviously has the coffee machine, but it stores tea, hot chocolate, and all the syrup flavors for fun cocktails and mocktails as well! For Halloween this year, we are decorating with this great Witchy Kitty design that was drawn by my 13 year old daughter. This Halloween black cat coffee sign is going to be part of our October decor for years to come.

Halloween Black Cat Coffee Sign Instructions
For the black cat I used the Galaxy FX vinyl from Styletech Craft. It’s a thicker, high-quality black vinyl with the multicolored flecks of glitter inside of it and it’s absolutely stunning to look at. For the cat’s eyes, I went with a transparent purple vinyl that looks great with the white background behind it.
This white almost distressed looking wooden blank was found at Michael’s. I used some DecoArt paint in Lamp Black to paint the frame black to match my decor. The wooden sign is pretty big, it’s 17 inches wide and 26 inches long. It did appear a bit scuffed when I purchased it, but the scuffing seemed to rub off with a dry towel and some elbow grease.
In the Silhouette Studio software, I sized my witchy kitty and the font. The font is called Skellington Hollow and it has glyphs with two letters together. That is how I got the mismatched heights of the letters.
When applying the cut vinyl and the words, I found it helpful to leave the two inch blue tape I had placed on for painting the frame, to use as a guide. Additionally, I used a T-square ruler and the griddled tape to help get everything on straight and centered. I always find it useful to use the smoothing tool to really get the vinyl to adhere and avoid bubbles under the vinyl.
Of course the Witchy Kitty made an appearance in a another place as well. The Witchy Kitty Cleansing Potion soap dispenser is in the bathroom. This was made with black craft gloss vinyl and the transparent gold glitter vinyl from StyleTech Craft. It is so cute!
