We are celebrating National Pet Month in May. Sheila’s May 6th “Wednesday Crafts with Sheila” showed us how to make a DIY Feather Cat Toy. View the video here.
Here are the instructions to make your own:
- Cat toy template (download and print feather template or make your own)
- Jingle bells
- Satin cord, rope or twine
- Using templates as guides, cut out one large and one small feather from two pieces of different colored medium-weight wool felt.
- Add a jump ring or use a piece of string to tie the bell to a small piece of string, rope or twine leaving enough room to tie to onto ribbon.
Slip end of a 1-yard length of satin cord, rope or twine through jump ring. At bell, tie stems of feathers to cord with a square knot. Knot both ends of to prevent fraying.
