DIY Catnip Cat Toy
Make sure to repin this craft
For a while I have been wanting to make Watson a catnip toy. Like most cats Watson loves catnip. I was able to buy some locally grown catnip and decided to make a cat toy out of it. The final cost was about $.40 to make this toy ( maybe even less) and he has been playing with it more than any other toy ( many of them that cost $10).
With what kind of cat toys do your cats play? Watson is all about anything with catnip and his Miss Piggy doll 🙂
I also was able to make this in under 10 minutes while watching tv
Here is Watson watching ( managing my work )
I really hope you try this craft – if you do try the craft please make sure to comment and let me know how it went.
This is what I used
I bought some fleece material from a local store – it was a scrap piece. Scissors, catnip, hot glue gun and a fish shape cutout.
Using the cutout – cut 2 similar shapes out of fleece. I suggest using better scissors for this – I was trying to use some I bought at the Dollar Tree and I was having some problems cutting the shapes well.
Fill the middle with catnip. Make sure to leave the edges catnip free since you will be gluing the edges.
Using the hot glue gun glue the two sides together. I let the toy sit for about 10 minutes before giving it to Watson. He has been loving to play with it.
What other shapes would you make. I did a fish because it was easy.
Would you like to see make cat toy crafts? I thought it would be fun to try and I am really excited to make more for Christmas for Watson since it is so inexpensive and easy. I just need to use my better scissors.
